caUSE co-MOTION! offer a snotty, upbeat approach to stripped-down noise pop. You may spot early Pastels, 14 Iced Bears or Comet Gain in their sloppy, hyper, reverb-soaked sound. Or think of them as the male compliment to the Vivian Girls, the happy counterpoint to current tour mates Crystal Stilts. Over the past three years the Brooklyn quartet’s released singles on various labels: Those jangle anthems are collected on the forthcoming It’s Time!: Singles & EPs 2005-2008 (10/28, Slumberland), a 14-track, 21-minute compilation. We debuted It’s Time!‘s ebullient second track “Baby Don’t Do It” in this week’s Drop and asked vocalist/guitarist Arno Kleni! told us a bit about it: Read, take a listen. (You can also check out “Which Way Is Up?” from the collection.)
In addition to caUSE Co-MOTION!, today’s Drop offered a chance to win Bob Dylan’s new children’s book Forever Young plus a Dylan box set and the complete Dylan Bootleg series.
One winner ends up with more Bob Dylan than they had before they won. You get Bob’s new children’s book Forever Young, the new Bootleg Vol 8: Tell Tale Signs, the red Dylan 3-CD boxset, and all the previous CDs in the Dylan Bootleg series: Volume 7, Volume 6, Volume 5, Volume 4, and Volumes 1-3.
You should already know a bit about Dylan’s music, but maybe not his kid’s book, so here’s a trailer about Forever Young:
CONTEST ENDS 11/05/08 AT 12PM EST.
