The ‘Gum Drop Volume XXII: Hear New DeVotchKa, Win Ray-Bans And Wyclef Jean Swag

This week’s Drop had a stringed, burlesqued, Gypsy-cum-Coloradan tune that came courtesy of Little Miss Sunshine soundtrackers and Siouxsie coverers DeVotchka. You can hear the rollicking “Transliterator” from the quartet’s forthcoming ANTI- debut A Mad and Faithful Telling, and read multi-tasking vocalist Nick Urata’s thoughts on the song, here. Also, because we like to remain optimistic in matters of some seasons coming to an end, new one’s beginning, we offered the chance to two winners to each win a pair of Ray-Ban 3025 Aviators along with Wyclef Jean’s new album. Why is Wyclef summer? Come on, you know “Hips Don’t Lie” was the hot weather jam in ’06. See the shades and Wyclef in a pair of his own after the pumps in the bump.


The Ray-Bans:

And, see, you can act all cool and mellow once you’ve had the balls to rock out with Paul Simon using only three strings. For example:

Slightly different sunglasses, totally the same vibe. Two winners each get the sunglasses and a copy of Jean’s Carnival Vol. II: Memoirs of an Immigrant. You can enter to win here. Keep in mind, too, that you can still enter to win the snowboarding-style skateboard, aka the Freebord. Do it.
