TVD Fall Vinyl Giveaway | Hurray for the Riff Raff

We were sitting around TVD HQ the other day and it struck us that we hadn't done a vinyl giveaway in weeks, so we're going to remedy that over the next number of weeks - beginning today!

In line with introducing you guys to KITTEN earlier, we've got the new release from Hurray for the Riff Raff, Young Blood Blues. I confess that until recently I hadn't heard of them, but on this I've been quite late to the party it seems. For example:

“Sweet tender folk music boasting lovely, loping melodies.”

Alynda Lee Segarra sings with a huskier version of Judy Garland's voice, a wavering crescendo twinkling at the corners, which are still caked with somberness and a sober tone.”

Young Blood Blues is a stark, stirring, and evocative modern folk masterpiece.”

Songwriter Alynda Lee's voice seems to emanate from some deep, wooded, dark Appalachian past.”
—Mojo Magazine

No faint praise there, hm?

We've got a copy of Hurray for the Riff Raff's Young Blood Blues in exchange for your comment the the appropriately named 'comments section' of this post. Stream and/or download the track above and share your thoughts with us and the one with the most mettle finds the LP in his or her own mailbox.

We'll give you a week to gather your thoughts and close this one next Monday, 10/25. Remember to leave us a contact email address so we can notify you as the winner.

Hurray for the Riff Raff are in Baltimore TONIGHT (10/18) at The Wind Up Space!

I actually have their song Daniella in very heavy rotation and would love the chance to check out the new tunes. I think their video for that song has them singing in the bathroom.

Well crap... I commented the other day but I guess it was to the wrong post...

When I hear a song that I like instantly I immediately go to the band's myspace page and listen to everything they have posted. With Hurray for the Riff Raff I did that and have been playing it all morning and will continue to do so until you send me the vinyl of Young Blood Blues.

They're fantastic and would really love to hear the album. Thanks for the post. I now have a new band to enjoy and get to know.
