Kevin at So Much Silence (who I just met after the Andrew Bird show a week back) points the way to a great new promotion from Anti- Records.
The label's blog is celebrating one year, and has a fantastic giveaway: five signed copies of Neko Case's highly anticipated Middle Cyclone will be given away at random. To enter, simply leave a comment with your email address.
A special bonus of every Neko album on Anti- goes to one of the winners.
And the blog promises more special giveaways throughout the week, so check back daily.
Last, and certainly not least, is the actual music. The title track is now available as a free download from Anti-. Middle Cyclone drops next week.
And the indispensable folks at All Songs Considered are streaming the entire album.
Neko has tour dates scheduled for the South, East Coast and Midwest, so here's hoping for a swing back to Arizona soon after.
