Contest: Win a copy of the new Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks record

In case you haven’t been able to tell, we’re really excited about the new Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks record, Mirror Traffic. Personally speaking, Malkmus’s Face The Truth was a bit of an obsession of mine when it came out in 2005, and I’ve fervently followed his solo career since. Oh yeah, and he was also in this band Pavement that you might have heard had some sort of reunion last year. Anyway…

What better way to celebrate the release of a new record from one of our favorite artists than an old fashioned giveaway contest? Head over to our Facebook page for details on how you can win a vinyl copy of Mirror Traffic, the double LP (well, three sided) that comes out next Tuesday, August 23. Don’t have a turntable? Well the album also comes with an MP3 coupon so you’re covered. Your record will also come with a free poster and will be shipped directly from Matador Records (shipping only to the United States… sorry!). A winner will be selected at random and contacted for shipping details.

If you want to give Mirror Traffic a listen, head over to NPR where you can stream the album in its entirety. If you’re in New York City next Thursday (8/25), Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks will be playing two “stripped down” performances at two different record stores, which you can read more about here. And there are also still tickets available for their show at Terminal 5 on September 26.
