TVD's Ten Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways - Week 3 | Sub Pop Week, Day 4

Our Ten Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways, The Subpop Week marches on with the new '2' from Retribution Gospel Choir.

Retribution Gospel Choir is a rock trio founded in 2007. The group features Alan Sparhawk on guitar and vocals, Steve Garrington on bass and Eric Pollard on drums and vocals. Alan also fronts the band Low with his wife, Mimi Parker, and Steve also plays bass in Low. 2 is Retribution Gospel Choir’s 2nd full-length and Sub Pop debut! Eric Swanson recorded these performances at Sacred Heart Studio in Duluth, Minnesota, and Matt Beckley mixed the recordings at Faux Rock in Sherman Oaks, California.

The rules can't be any simpler for our Sub Pop LP Giveaways this week: each day this week we'll be launching a new Sub Pop RSD2010 Vinyl Giveaway and all you need to do to enter to win is to leave a comment in the comments section to that week's giveaway letting us know why you deserve to win that week's LP.

Be creative, funny, incisive—whatever it takes to grab our attention to deem you the winner. Most important however is to leave us a contact email address! You can be brilliant as hell, but if we can't track ya' down, you're out of the running.

All winners will all be notified
on Monday (3/1) upon the launch of the next RSD2010 Vinyl Giveaway!

Saw these guys at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Best part was when they busted out some Reggae riffs at the end. This is a vinyl that I'll play as the snow melts from my windowsill. Much obliged, (noahchestnut at gmail)

Our neighbor's band opened for Retribution Gospel Choir last month. They totally rocked! Please send me their album so I can continue the good vibe!

Because I need religion, especially of the irreligious rocking kind.

That Retribution Gospel Choir album is so good that I'd be willing to convert to Mormonism to get a free copy of the vinyl. It's gonna be one of my top albums of the year but I've been unemployed for six months and can't afford to grab the vinyl.
In the name of Joseph Smith! Hook a brotha up!

i'm pleased to see that alan sparhawk was inspired by DC's recent bout of weather for the album cover.

I have never heard of these guys, and I would love to become a believer in rock music. I go to church every week, and the name "Retribution Gospel Choir" seems to be a great fit in my collection along with my other Christian vinyl records.
