Giving It All Away (2)

I ran the random number generator this morning (5/3/10) and the winner is reggaechicken! I sent you a message via tumblr, but in case you see it here first, send me an e-mail with your mailing address so that I can send you your 7"!

I didn't anticipate having another item to give away so soon, but I've ended up with another copy of the Allo Darlin' The Polaroid Song 7" (b/w the lovely "Will You Spend New Year's With Me?") and what am I going to do with two? Raffle one off, obviously.

So, here's the deal: if you'd like to have an Allo Darlin' 7" of your very own, leave a comment by midnight on Sunday, May 2nd (EST) with one of your favorite summer jams and you're in the running.

If you're the kind of person who likes to have an edge in these sorts of things, you can link to Side Ponytail from elsewhere on the internet (and comment here or e-mail me at to let me know!) and I'll give you 2 extra numbers when I run the random number generator on Monday morning. This is, obviously, not mandatory.

The previous giveaway was restricted to US residents... This one is not! So feel free to enter if you live abroad.

For those of you who might not be familiar with Allo Darlin', I've written about them on SP several times. They had my top single of 2009 with "Henry Rollins Don't Dance" and I am eagerly, eagerly awaiting their upcoming full length on Fortuna Pop (due in June -- but if you're lucky enough to catch them live, they're already selling it at shows.)

Allo Darlin' will be playing at the NYC Popfest (wish I could be there!) and has a lovely website with more information and some free downloads.

& here's a video for "The Polaroid Song":

This is a raffle I'd love to win! I'll go with a classic: Pas/Cal - The Bronzed Beach Boys

Is "When I'm With You" by West Coast too easy of a choice?

I was listening to my ipod on my way to work after reading this post and M.I.A.'s "Boyz" came on and I thought, this one!

oh awesome!
into it.
right now i'm digging super hard on the okmoniks as summer music, a) because helene33 is awesome and b) because i just bought a 60's combo organ of my very own and feel hella inspired.
