More Gimmicks: COMPETITION TIME!
That's right loyal readers, in order to boost the gimmicky appeal of this 'ere blog, we're going to hold our very first competition! Skipping right to the business end of things, here is what you have to do: you may choose between Rikki and Otto's Journey - two sensational Mylo tracks - and typesing the tune for me. Which is literally what it sounds like. Points will be awarded for those who can accurately do it (ie. if it actually conveys the song, in which case you are brilliant) and, falling short of that, for anyone who can entertain me. Here are the tracks:
Mylo - Rikki
Mylo - Otto's Journey
As far as prizes go, you also have a choice! Since everybody loves The Presets, and the collectors edition of Apocalypso just popped its head out, the winner can pick between (a) the collectors edition of said album, featuring bonus remixes disc, scarf and poster; (b) their stunning debut Beams in 2x12" vinyl glory; or (c) the always tempting and excitingly risky Mystery Prize!
The Presets - Anywhere (Still Going Remix)
The Presets - Kitty In The Middle
Email your entries to email@example.com - the compy closes on the 20th of October, so quick sticks. I'll post anywhere in the world so don't be shy. Give me some creativity! I'll contact the winner to arrange some kind of award ceremony or something.
In other news, Mr. Oizo's latest offering, Lambs Anger (due out November 17th) is nothing short of spectacular and I can't keep myself from posting a taste. I'm going to go all the way and say it's my number 1 electronic album for 2008, hands down. Serrrriously, this is one album you NEED to buy. Go get a tent and start camping outside your local record store so you can be the first one to get your hands on one of those bad boys. These are a couple of the more upbeat tracks on the album, and certainly two of my favourites. GET EXCITED!
Mr. Oizo - Two Takes It (feat. Carmen Castro)
Mr. Oizo - Gay Dentists
I guess since I've just posted Otto's Journey for the 15th time, or something, I'd better put up the final version in 320 of Otto's Golden Journey. A lot of people have been asking me for it, so I guess i don't feel too bad.
