The 2013 edition of Record Store Day is slated for April 20, and to get music lovers salivating, the folks behind the annual event have posted the complete list of releases. In past years, RSD has brought no shortage of rarities, special reissues, limited edition sets and other gems, and 2013 is no different. In fact, we tried to tally up the number of exclusive releases coming out this year but quickly gave up. There are just too many to count!

From Brooklyn noise-mongers A Place to Bury Strangers to singer-songwriter ZZ Ward and so many in between, the Record Store Day release list boasts a ton of killer stuff. A quick glance reveals offering by many great artists -- Best Coast, the xx, the Black Keys, the Hold Steady, Ty Segall, Thurston Moore, Dan Deacon, the Flaming Lips and Pulp, just to name a few -- but really, you must peruse the whole thing to get the complete idea.

Releases fall into three categories: Record Store Day Exclusives, which, as the name implies, are exclusively available on RSD at participating stores an will not be available anywhere else in the same format ever again; Record Store Day Limited Run/Regional Focus Releases, which also are exclusively available on the day of at some participating outlets, but in quantities so extremely limited that they can't be found at all stores; and Record Store Day First Releases, which are offerings that are being released for the first time on April 20 at RSD retailers, but will be available in the same format at other outlets at a later date.
