music monday presents...

... a GIVEAWAY!!!
{are you excited? i really hope so because i am!!}

you may remember, a while back i posted about a duo called cults. {you can play one of their songs in the player on the sidebar} well, about 5 weeks ago they announced that they'd be selling a limited 400 copies of their 7" single pressed on bright yellow vinyl.
bright. yellow. vinyl. {just in case you didn't catch that before}

just look how delicious the cover is.
i had to have one, and i had a feeling they would sell out fast. they did. but i got mine. holla.
i'd read that they wouldn't ship til around the 20th of april, so there was a lot of waiting involved... waiting is hard for a gal who never got so good at being patient.
still working on that one.
i checked the letter box each day, even though i knew it wouldn't be there. but then... last tuesday, i checked the box and there it was. i came undone. smiles were leaping right off my face as i feverishly tore apart the envelope as if a 5 million dollar check was inside.
i got it open and it was even more beautiful in person than i hoped it would be. and the vinyl was yellow. so yellow. this led to more acrobatic smiles.
i put it right on the turntable and it sounded like perfection. even more smiles. my face started to hurt. we played it over and over and over. and smiled and sang and danced all over the house.
it was good.

then... 
{this is the part where i get to the giveaway}
... wednesday, i checked the letter box just out of habit i suppose and what to my absolute surprise, there was another one!!! i thought it was a mistake, a happy accident if you will... they'd shipped it to me twice, lucky me. but in fact what had happened was somebody else wanted me to have this record just as much as i wanted me to have it. they bought it for me the very same night i bought it for myself, and had it shipped to my house hoping it would arrive in time for my birthday, which it did. isn't that a kick in the pants?

so... now i have two. and keeping them both, though oddly tempting, would be greedy and weird.
{this is where you come in}
