Enter To Win Tickets To Marika Hackman!
London singer-songwriter Marika Hackman's second album (and Sub Pop debut), I'm Not Your Man, has garnered raves from the likes of Pitchfork ("the proper arrival of a bold young British force.") and her hometown daily, The Guardian, who exclaimed "[Hackman] set fire to her twee-ish sound and risen from the alt-folk scene like a proper stomping pop star, all sharp suits and songs that brood with breakup angst and simmer with sexuality. Her pearlescent lightness is still there in her sweetly sung cut-glass vocals, but in place of acoustic twangs there are heavy lidded licks and an overall louche noir. Grunge and shoegaze set the tone this time: the diaphanous guitar chimes enveloping like a cape."
Of course, she's touring in support of the album with a Seattle stop at the over-21 Sunset Tavern on August 4th. Enter to win a pair of tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "My Lover Cindy" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 8/3. Good luck!
