New contest #1: Black Lips/Yacht 7" from the Fader folks
Okay kids, today is a Two Contest Day. This first one is my favorite kind because it involves vinyl (the record kind, not, like . . . the outfit kind or anything).
As previously mentioned, Fader Magazine is pairing up with the favorite comfort of the South to offer this limited 7" club featuring up-and-coming artists. The last one featured the remix of "Magic Trick" with M. Ward and Jim James (b-side Ladyhawk), and this time around one lucky reader will win him or herself a limited edition 7" containing the following:
Side A: Wild Man - The Black Lips
(cover of The Tamrons' 1967 garage rock tune from Atlanta "flower punk" band)
Side B: No Favors Policy - YACHT
(funky electronica from one-man band project of Jona Bechtolt, formerly half of The Blow)
To win this fine treat, please tell me the story of your record player. In other words, how will you enjoy this prize? I think you should have a record player to win it, but I guess anyone can enter. Your comment won't hold the same oomph though, will it? I will pick a winner on Friday (be sure to leave a way to contact you).
Also, in conjunction with the contest, FADER's gone ahead and put their whole latest issue in pdf for you to peruse. Check it here.
