Win the new Black Angels album
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know how much I love the new Black Angels album. Directions To See A Ghost is a dark, droning masterpiece. It's been in everyday rotation around here for the past three weeks, and my love for it is showing no signs of waning whatsoever. It has already become the album to beat as my favorite of the year, and it's not even in stores yet (though it will be on May 13, and it's available on iTunes right now). You can find out what all the fuss is about for yourself on the band's imeem profile, where the album is currently streaming in it's entirety. If you haven't heard it already, you seriously need to check it out.
Thanks to our friends at Light In The Attic Records, we are giving away three copies of the new CD, along with the four song bonus EP that is otherwise available exclusively through the digital prerelease promotion that is going on now. How can you win one of these sweet ass prize packages? Simply get your inner Steven King on and tell us a ghost story... in 25 words or less. Shoot us an email with the subject line "BOO!" with your story, and make sure you include your name and address (they don't have to be part of the story, although I guess it could be your house that's haunted). You've got until midnight next Thursday, May 8 to enter. On Friday morning our panel of experts (uh, me... and several cups of coffee) will pick the three best entries, and your CDs will be on their way to your mailbox. So be creative. Be scary. Be goofy. But most of all, be brief.
UPDATE: And the winners are...
The Black Angels - "Doves" (mp3)
The Black Angels - "You On The Run" (mp3)
