[Vinyl Giveaway] IDAHO and CAMP RADIO’s latest LPs

Posted on January 30, 2012 at 12:51 pm | 1 Comment

As promised a couple weeks back in my Faves of 2011 post, I have extra vinyl editions of two of those fine records to grant to some lucky souls. And they couldn’t be more different: Camp Radio‘s “Campista Socialista” full-length and Idaho‘s “You Were A Dick” LP. A blast of Canadian trio power-pop and one man’s LA-based, keyboard-driven melancholia.

As I started prepping this giveaway this morning, Chromewaves happened to post a review of the Camp Radio album (confluence!), so head over there to read Frank’s thoughts, then come back here to try and win the sucker. If you’re not convinced you want it, head to Bandcamp and stream away. Here’s a track…

[MP3]: Turn Up The Radio

And if you’re not already familiar with Idaho’s extensive discography, well, you’ve got a lot of listening ahead of you. Start by trying to win “You Were A Dick”, then you’ll want to head back to the beginning with 1993’s brilliant “Year After Year”. Here’s the title track off YWAD…

[MP3]: You Were A Dick

You can thank Camp Radio guitarist Chris Page for the 2 vinyl copies I’ve got to hand out (each of which include a digital download code), and you can blame thank the U.S. postal service for the Idaho vinyl – my original order got very lost in the mail, only showing up after singer/songwriter Jeff Martin sent me out a replacement (a replacement that also includes a bonus data DVD of hi-res audio). Graciously, Jeff was cool with my giving the extra away rather than mailing it back to him.

To enter: send an email in my direction [giveaways (at) bradleysalmanac (dot) com] before next Monday, February 6th, at Noon, specify which vinyl LP you’d like (Camp Radio or Idaho), and include your postal address (US/Canada only, and don’t worry, I won’t share it). On Monday I’ll pick three random winners – two for the Camp Radio vinyl and one for the Idaho – then head to the post office.

    thanks for tipping this again, i didn’t pay attention the first time. they must have played a lot of Superchunk around the campfire. When Slack came on i thoughtmy browser had switched to Merge.
