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.”
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!
