Win An Alex Cameron Prize Package - Tickets & Signed Vinyl!

Win An Alex Cameron Prize Package - Tickets & Signed Vinyl!

"Recalling David Bowie and Ariel Pink under a Lynch-ian lens, Alex Cameron weaves intelligent, poignant lyricism with primitive '80s synths and seemingly minimalist arrangements. His debut, Jumping The Shark, is a brilliantly raw and confident collection of four-minute tales written to provide you with insight into the inner workings of Cameron."

Sydney's Alex Cameron spent last fall and winter touring the east coast with Angel Olsen and the west coast (except Seattle, ahem!) with Thee Oh Sees, and now he's gonna make it up to us with a March 28th show at the Tractor Tavern (21+) with special guests Delicate Steve and The Kingdom Boogie Band. We're gonna give away a pair of tickets to the show plus a signed copy of Jumping The Shark to one lucky winner! Enter to win by e-mailing us with the subject line "Mongrel" and please include first & last name with entry. The winner's name +1 will be on the guest list at the Tractor, and he/she must pick up signed album at our store in West Seattle. Good luck!

Enter To Win Real Estate's "In Mind" On Vinyl!

Enter To Win Real Estate's "In Mind" On Vinyl!

Real Estate's new album, In Mind, dropped last week! "On In Mind, the band fine-tunes the winsome songwriting and profound earnestness that made previous albums—Real Estate, Days, and Atlas—so beloved and pushes their songs in compelling new directions. Written primarily by guitarist/vocalist Martin Courtney, In Mind offers a mild shifting of the gears, positing a band engaged in the push/pull of burgeoning adulthood. Reflecting a change in lineup, changes in geography, and a general desire to move forward without looking back, the record recasts the band in a new light — one that replaces the ennui of teen suburbia with an adult version." 

We're giving away a copy of In Mind on vinyl to one lucky winner. Enter to win by e-mailing us with the subject line "Serve The Song" and please include first & last name with entry. Winner must be able to pick up prize at our store in West Seattle within one month of notification. Good luck!

Pre-Order Rodney Crowell's New Album & You Could Win Signed Guitar/Vinyl!

Rodney Crowell's new album, Close Ties, is coming out 3/31 on New West Records! Pre-order it from us online or in-store and we'll give you a free signed CD booklet along with the album!

In addition, local customers who pre-order will automatically be entered to win one of three grand prize signed guitars! Runner-up winner will receive a signed vinyl copy of Close Ties! Winner must be able to pick up prize at our store in West Seattle. Good luck!

Close Ties is a roots record, in the sense that Crowell himself has deep roots that stretch back into the alternative country scene of the early seventies. The rise of Americana music has struck a nerve with Crowell. “I have declared my loyalty to Americana. It’s a hard category for people to get their heads around, or at least the terminology is. But all the people who represent it—Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and more recent stars like John Paul White and Jason Isbell—share a common thread, and that thread is poetry.
