I like to think that one underlying, yet recurring theme here at TVD, is that vinyl in all of its various formats is a contemporary medium--perhaps even more so than CDs at the moment.
In tandem with this notion is our constant search for new artists or bands with an affinity for vinyl, who are releasing new product on vinyl, and who go so far as to have a record literally tattooed on their person. (Ahem...)
It is with this in mind ladies and gents, TVD's Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaway Week #10 is most proud to present: Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles' new release 'The Stars Are Out!'
"The ten selections of 'The Stars Are Out'—five new originals, and five covers—winnowed down by Sarah, band mates—guitarist Lyle Brewer, bassist Binky, and drummer Rob Dulaney—and producers Paul Q. Kolderie (the Pixies, Lemonheads, Radiohead) and Adam Taylor, include tunes attributed to Smokey Robinson (a radically reworked “Being With You”), Stiff Records act Any Trouble (“Yesterday'sLove,” penned by Clive Gregson), and the Magnetic Fields' “No One Will Ever Love You.”
The results of 'The Stars Are Out' include the slinky, '60s stroll of “Me and Your Ghost”; the flirtatious, guitar-driven kickoff, “Do It For Free”; and “It Comes To Me Naturally,” a hip-shaking tale of a girl-about-town, originally recorded by bar band supreme NRBQ."
We'll have three winners for this particular giveaway. Sarah's given TVD a highly limited clear orange vinyl copy of 'The Stars Are Out' and the 7" single from her previous LP, 'The Day We Met' for one grand prize winner. Two runners up will receive 'The Day We Met' 7" and a CD copy of 'The Stars Are Out.'
