Record Store Day exclusives are slowly making their way to the internet, for better or worse – we hope you got out to support your local record store, but we’re psyched to share all this good new music.

One of our favorites is the Flaming Lips’ cover of Guided by Voices’ “Smothered in Hugs,” which appears on Fake Label’s Sing For Your Meat compilation of GBV covers. The Lips picked one of the best tracks on Bee Thousand to make their own – it sounds awesome, a slow burner of a song drenched in enough psych-y, nostalgic guitar reverb to drown you. Enjoy.
