Contest and the Lovely Feathers

Thanks to addVICE, we get to run our first contest here at CPMU. Remember young Swedish indie pop band Envelopes I posted last week? Well, we’re giving away an Envelopes prize pack which includes the new disc Demon (definitely a good listen), as well as the single Sister In Love” on 7″ vinyl and some band badges. Very cool. Since its the first contest, I didn’t want to make you work for it. Rather, I just want to get as much participation as I can. The more we get here, the better chances we have at doing some more really cool contest. You don’t need a Blogger name to post comments, so EVERYONE who reads can enter. It doesn’t take much. All you have to do is leave a comment with your e-mail address (which will be given to Vice unless you opt-out…but trust me, Vice is great, you’ll want to hear from them) so I will be able to contact you if you win. I’ll pick completely at random. So, just give it a shot. The prizes are great and it will help us get more contests at CPMU. I’m going to post the same Envelopes tracks in case you missed them or don’t want to go searching for them again.

Envelopes – Sister In Love
Envelopes – Glue
Envelopes – Your Fight Is Over

“I really really really really like you.”

After recieving the Lovely Feathers disc entitled Hind Hind Legs in the mail, it took me awhile to get into it. Upon listening to the first couple of tracks, I kind of just wrote them off as another manic, hurried alt-pop band. However, after digging a bit deeper, I realized that the Lovely Feathers were indeed able to break that mold and offer up something a little bit more personal and less frantic. I chose my 3 favorites tracks to share with you all, so I hope you can appreciate them like I do.

    Great — I got the link to your site from Geoff’s site, The Ugly Couch, as I know some of the folks who know him. Now I’ve been visiting both your sites, but I absolutely *love* seeing a young woman write about music. Is that, like, a reverse politically correct statement? I don’t know much about music, so you gal and guys have to keep me on the leading edge. -Anita

    nope, no selling of your email address. They just send mailers about their bands…but its like, not lame stuff. They’ll send e-cards and exclusive download links and stuff like that. I wouldn’t be going along with it if it wasn’t a good thing. trust me…!
