October 9, 2011
Last week's contest asked you to name your favorite book. This week, I am asking about your favorite album of the year.
Over the year my favorite album of 2011 has fluctuated between tUnE-yArDs' w h o k i l l, St. Vincent's Strange Mercy, and Wye Oak's Civilian, but lately it is the Wye Oak disc that has been in rotation the most.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment with the name of the best album (new or old of any genre) you have heard this year. If you don't have one, feel free to state that.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Wye Oak's album Civilian in mp3, CD or vinyl formats (or an Amazon gift certificate for $25 if you would rather)
A $100 Threadless gift certificate (to buy music-related t-shirts like Music Box, Listening to My Song, Play It By Ear, and I Listen to Bands That Don't Even Exist Yet, and many more.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (October 14th).
