If you thought for a moment you wouldn't get an opportunity to grab Jukebox the Ghost's brand new Everything Under The Sun on vinyl—well, you'd be mistaken. We indeed have a copy to give away to one of you. First up however, the official background-y stuff via Yep Roc:
"Jukebox the Ghost have passionate fans. Fans who've gone so far as to tattoo the band's name on their body or drive for days to see their shows, or post lovesick monologues dedicated to their glory on YouTube. Through a dogged work ethic and near-obsessive touring — headlining and alongside heavyweights like Ben Folds and Adam Green (The Moldy Peaches) — the band managed to sell over 10,000 copies of their debut album and cultivated the aforementioned rabid fan base.
Now, with a fully developed sound and a songwriting and live performance approach seasoned by hundreds upon hundreds of gigs, the band are set to turn heads with sophomore effort Everything Under the Sun, produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National). The trio is looking to spread their gospel of hook-stuffed, melody rich pop to the world at large. Beatles and Brit pop influences abound on Everything and the band provides a nod to those influences with their attention to filling the album with great songs beginning to end, not building an album around just a few great tracks. In the words of Yep Roc Records co-founder Glenn Dicker, "Most records have three great songs, this one has 11."
Now it's time for your schpiel. Sell us on sending you Everything Under the Sun, in the comments to this post, and the most convincing one of the bunch will find the LP on his or her doorstep. You've got a week to conjure your missive to us—we'll close this one next Thursday, 10/21 and don't forget to leave us a contact email address!
