Hopefully this week’s ‘Gum Drop made it safely to your inbox (we made sure to pack it extra carefully). In case you haven’t unwrapped it, snoop around a bit and grab Nellie McKay’s venture into Spanish language sing-a-longing (could a duet with Devendra be next?). If that’s not enough of a temptation, there’s also this week’s giveaway: The folks at UNKL are offering a six-piece set of 2″ Wilco figurines. That’s right, Wilco wobbles, but they don’t fall down. Click here to enter to win.
Also, in case you’ve missed any past ‘Gum Drop installments, now you can click backwards in time and stream the songs that our subscribers were able to download and make their own: never-before-released songs from Deerhunter, and Xiu Xiu, and Marissa Nadler, oh my. We have a lot planned for future dispatches, so to make sure you don’t miss a beat, sign-up now (you’ll get a link to this week’s exclusive Nellie MP3 with e-mail confirmation.)
