Phosphorescent ‘Pride’, Bodies of Water, MP3s, a contest

DOWNLOAD: Phosphorescent – A Picture Of Our Torn Up Praise (MP3)

DOWNLOAD: Bodies of Water – These Are The Eyes (MP3) <-- hot PrideI spent much of this weekend (and this morning) listening to Phosphorescent‘s excellent new album Prideout now on Dead Oceans. If I had to describe it, I’d say it fits in nicely with its label-mate Dirty Projectors, but is more like (a lot like) Will Oldham (aka Bonnie Prince Billy) with a bit of Neil Young and Sufjan Stevens thrown into the mix. (read Pitchfork‘s review for a more thorough analysis).

Then I got excited today when I remembered that Phosphorescent has two NYC shows scheduled for this week – Silent Barn on Friday (November 9th) & Cake Shop on Saturday (the old dates had that order reversed in case you’re confused like I just was). Bodies of Water also play both shows.

Bodies of Water
Bodies of Water

Bodies of Water are a quartet from LA creating 60’s Pop-folk numbers, complete with four-part harmonies and buckets of choral chanting. Their new album Ears Will Pop & Eyes Will Blink was self-released through the band’s own Thousand Tongues label, and has been getting good reviews all over the place. [Covert Curiosity]

Then coincidentally Dead Oceans asked me if I’d like to do a giveaway for these shows today, and I said “yes, that’s perfect thanks”. Contest details, and updated tour dates, below….

I’ve got a pair of tickets to Cake Shop, a pair to Silent Barn, and two copies of “Pride” on vinyl. To win, e-mail: BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (put the prize name you want in the subject). Also include your first and last name. I’ll email back four winners picked at random – one winner for each prize. Your email will not be sold to anyone or anything like that.
