Win a Copy of Shearwater's The Golden Archipelago!

The kind folks at Matador Records have offered to give away an LP (those are the ones that go on turntables, for those who don't know) copy of Shearwater's The Golden Archipelago.

What do you need to do? Just answer a simple question.

It's well-known that lead singer Jonathan Meiburg is an ornithologist (he studies birds and in order to do so has traveled around the world, visiting the Galapagos Islands, the Chatham Islands, among other places). What species of bird did he write his master's thesis on?


Send your answer to cassie@interference.com by Sunday, March 14th at 11:59 am. The winner will be chosen at random from the correct answers received.

This is pretty cool, Oneblood.

Sorry that my reply is not nearly as obnoxious as the one above mine.

Oh I don't know, I found it extremely obnoxious.

I liked Scumbo better when I didn't like him.

As an explanation, I have frequently commented and joked about Meiburg's bird obsession (and apparent recent dog obsession) in the past. I'm not sure if you were joking, or honestly thought I was trying to slight 1bl00d or this giveaway (which should go without saying, is extremely awesome), in some way, which I was not. It was just another "Meiburg + birdz" joke.

On a personal humorous / traumatizing note, I was actually attacked by a bird as a child at the zoo in an extremely similar fashion to The Birds picture I posted above.

I was kidding.

As if living in Utah doesn't give you enough reasons to stay inside.

Word. I can't take credit for the idea though; the lovely publicity woman at Matador suggested that we do it after I sent my album review in to get press credentials for Shearwater's concert.

It's okay, obnoxiousness is not a requirement for admission here.

That sucks, how come you had to take it back?

Visualizing this scene basically made my night...many thanks for sharing, Scumbo.

Side B was so scratched up, I thought it must have banged Lance's Mom. Took it back and got cash back rather than another LP since funds are a bit tight right now. I'm that cheap.

So yeah, I still haven't really listened to the album.

Hope you win then, Imps, as I may not be able to respect you until you once again own Shearwaterz.
