Hey guys, Jana here,


We always get a little excited when April rolls around and believe me it’s not because it’s tax season. We, at Boomstick.com love music as well as movies, and every April brings us… Record Store Day! The vinyl junkies of the world take in a deep breath as they step into a record store and the joy of that scent is similar to that of a bibliophile upon entering a library.

Every year we give you a sampling of what gems will be offered on this holy day and we’ve already given you a brief summary here. This post is to tell you about something we have a special love for as it blends our fanatacism of movies with our near devotion of music. When you put those elements together you have a beautiful baby that we call the soundtrack. There will be three specific titles you should add to your collection if you aim to be a musically well-rounded individual.

Varèse Sarabande announces three soundtrack album releases for Record Store Day on April 16, 2016: ‘John Wick‘, ‘How To Train Your Dragon‘, and ‘Dark Shadows‘.
