Busy Jersey-born favorites Real Estate slowed things down and classed them up on their excellent new self-titled Woodsist full-length. For instance, we first heard a speedier, electric “Green River” as the nugget-sized B-Side on the “Fake Blues” 7″: Take a listen to the album’s languid acoustic approach after you read frontman Martin Courtney’s thoughts on the extended chill-out makeover.
This week we also offered the chance to win a DJ Hero bundle with game and turntable controller.
Two Grand Prize winners get the DJ Hero Bundle, which includes the game and the Turntable Controller. (The platform — Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, PlayStation, or Wii — is up to the winners.) This is what comes in the DJ Hero Bundle:
We’ve told you about the game previously, but not in this depth:
DJ Hero invites audiences of all kinds to the party, bringing living room legends to the main stage with the newest innovation in music gaming with an exclusive 93-mix track list, created by a host of legendary DJs uniquely blending almost every genre of music including hip hop, rock, pop, R&B and dance. Featuring electrifying gameplay that incorporates the fundamentals of DJing in a fun and accessible format, and booming tracks from Rihanna to The Killers; Marvin Gaye to Daft Punk; Queen to the Black Eyed Peas, DJ Hero provides consumers an opportunity to interact and listen to music unlike ever before … Created exclusively for DJ Hero, the turntable controller immerses fans into the DJ culture and a sea of music as they utilize and master various DJ techniques including scratching, crossfading and sampling, while leaving room for creative expression with a variety of effects and player chosen samples and scratches, transforming a face in the crowd into the life of the party.
