The ‘Gum Drop LV: Hear New Magnetic Morning (Interpol + Swervedriver), Win A Fender Guitar

Magnetic Morning’s the project of Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino and Swervedriver frontman Adam Franklin. The duo previously put out a self-titled six-song EP and recently completed their debut LP A.M. in Athens, Georgia with the help of the Album Leaf’s Jimmy LaVelle, among others. In this week’s ‘Gum Drop we premiered the epic, downcast, fresh-from-the-studio “At A Crossroads, Passive” and spoke with Adam and Sam about the track: Take a listen and learn what happens when you arrive at crossroads and don’t move. A.M. is out 10/21 via Friend Or Faux. You can hear more Magnetic Morning at their MySpace.

This week, we also offered the chance to take home a Fender Highway One Texas Telecaster Guitar.
