vinyl Another competition with thanks to Tower Records Dublin and this time I’ve got some sweet vinyl swag to giveaway. I’m giving away a copy of Major Lazer’s Guns Don’t Kill People Lazers Do and the excellent The Low Anthem’s Oh My God Charlie Darwin both on vinyl.

Anyone who frequents the shop on Wicklow Street knows that they have a great selection of 12s and 7s in stock and it has recently been bolstered by some rarer re-issued gems including 7″s from Stone Roses and Beck, Animal Collective’s Danse Manatee on 12″ and loads more. See the full list of additions here.

To win all you have to do is leave a comment below with your answer to the question:

What’s your most treasured vinyl and why?

Comp closes next Monday. By the way, the deadly Florence and the Machine competition ends this Sunday.

Now that the dust has settled, as a recap and a recommendation post – here are the twelve bands which made the long trip to Texas totally worth it.

  1. Starfucker

    From Portland, Oregon, these guys played a storming set in Radio Room on 6th Street to a crowd who seemed familiar with their tunes as was evident in the body-poppin and dancing around the venue. Starfucker’s music is a fun mix of indie-pop and electro elements with a bit of occasional scratching. I’d love to see them over here sometime soon.
