In what is becoming a nice complement to Record Store Day at the city’s music shops each April, the semiannual Brooklyn Flea Record Fair returns today to East River State Park (at North 7th Street) with a diverse array of vendors and exclusive releases for music obsessives. Labels like Fatcat and Warp sell rare items, like a cassette from indie rockers Paws that isn’t available in stores, and “super limited box sets” from Aphex Twin, Brian Eno, Autechre, and more. The fair also hosts booths run by collectors, local stores like Other Music, and nearly 30 indie record labels including DFA and Merge, as well as a soundtrack provided by guest DJs like James Pants and Veronica Vasicka of Minimal Wave.
