Currently touring in the States, Scottish four-piece indie-gloomsters The Twilight Sad are one of DiS’s favourite acts to emerge in 2007 so far. Their debut album, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, received our seal of approval here (choice quote: “for a debut record to sound this accomplished suggests a promising future”), and now the band’s awesome label, FatCat, has sent us a bag of goodies to give away. Hurray!
Founded in ‘97, FatCat is also home to No Age (awesome), múm (awesome), and Charlottefield (awesome – spotting a trend?). They kindly sent us the following to give away:
Two copies of Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters on vinyl and CD.
Two copies of the single ‘And She Would Darken The Memory’ on 7”.
Two copies of the FatCat sampler CD for 2007, featuring all the above and more.
Two lovely Twilight Sad t-shirts, in medium. They are nice.
So, two lucky pups will get all that swag. Well, half the above swag. One of each, Yeah.
All you need to do to have a chance of winning is answer this:
FatCat is based in which south coast settlement?
