In this week’s ‘Gum Drop we offered “Alone At The Pier,” the Rose Melberg-intoned standout from Gigi’s Maintenant (Tomlab, 2/10), a 50’s and ’60s pop smorgesboard concocted by No Kids’ Nick Krgovich and producer Colin Stewart and featuring Owen Pallett, Karl Blau, and Mirah, among others. We spoke with Nick about the track and the influence Imitation of Life, A Summer Place, and Sandra Dee had on it. Get the facts while you take a listen.
This week we also offered the chance to win an M-Audio Fast Track recording interface.
One Grand Prize winner gets an M-Audio Fast Track recording interface (a $150 value), courtesy of the longstanding community-oriented Santa Cruz electro crew STS9. The same winner also nabs an STS9 Red Rocks print ($100 value), a $100 gift certificate to use at the STS9store.com, and a copy of the band’s most recent album Ad Explorata, which came out in early December on STS9’s boutique digital label 1320. You can stream the entire thing here. The cover:
The Red Rock print:
This is what the M-Audio Fast Track looks like. The device allows you to record guitar, vocals, and etc., on your computer.
CONTEST ENDS 01/27/10 AT 12PM EST.
