UPDATE: ...we've extended the entry date to this Friday, 4/23!
You've been sufficiently brainwashed, right? You hear and obey and will be hitting up your local independent music shops tomorrow in celebration of Record Store Day 2010...right?
We thought so.
I'd say our work is done here for one year, but the rest is up to you, friends. I don't care what corner of the globe you're tuning us in, you've got a mom and pop shop on some corner whose doors are wide open for your arrival tomorrow and they're flush with a myriad of exclusive RSD2010 vinyl releases for you to take home and slather with affection.
Click here to download the entire list of RSD2010 releases.
And we have two of those exclusive platters of vinyl on offer as our very last giveaway of our Ten Weeks of Record Store Day Giveaways.
First up, One AM Radio's 'Credible Threats' limited edition (500 hand-numbered copies) 7" on colored vinyl.
“I’m never sleeping, I’m too busy keeping track of all the ways they say I might die.” That’s how Credible Threats opens: from the perspective of a fraught narrator tuned into his daily fears and nightly news. Caught somewhere between wry self-deprecation and full nervous breakdown, this is a dance song for Marshall McLuhan, or a pop anthem for Jack Gladney and his family in Delillo’s “White Noise.”
The 7” comes with a 3D music video directed by Andrew Huang, and old-school 3D glasses to watch it. The vinyl’s B-side is a remix by the Mae Shi, who slow the song’s frenetic pace down and re-create it with the gang vocals of a disorganized mob. The video and both tracks also come digitally, along with a bonus remix by Jogger. The limited-edition, hand-numbered 7“s include a code and a link to download all of the files.
The song’s second verse begins, “I’m never sleeping, I’m too busy keeping track of all the things that could go wrong.” But this isn’t a song to go to sleep to. When the apocalypse comes, at least you’ll be dancing.
Next we have Chuck Ragan's Daytrotter Session on 10" vinyl. These songs were recorded in the summer of 2009 at The Horseshack studio in downtown Rock Island, IL by the fine folks at Daytrotter. They were the featured Daytrotter Session on August 25, 2009.
The rules can't be any simpler for our last week of RSD2010 Giveaways. All you need to do to enter to win is to leave a comment in the comments section to this giveaway letting us know why you deserve to win this week's vinyl.
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, 4/19!
