We have one of the limited to 300 pressing 150 gram vinyl copies that comes with an immediate download of the EP in FLAC, MP3 320, or any other format that your heart ears may desire.

In case you need a refresher course on Anthem Facility, they're a side project of the much loved on SKOA band Lavalier. Their gorgeous debut single, which is also the title of their EP, "Trace", was fortunate to see some love on the hit show Entourage. You can check out the video for the single below.

[Contest] [US-Only] Win A Copy of Rah Rah - Rahmixes On Vinyl!

Upon releasing their sophomore album, Breaking Hearts, on November 15th, Canadian indie rock outfit Rah Rah also offered up a remix album both digitially and on vinyl which is cleverly titled Rahmixes. The remix album features reworks from the likes of NGHTBLND, Rich Kidd, Super Moment, Cadence Weapon, Kitchen Party and many more.

We've managed to get our hands on a vinyl copy of Rahmixes and since we are (as usual) in the spirit of giving, we're going to give it away to one of our lucky readers in the US!

To enter, simply shoot us an email before Monday, December 5th 2011 at noon EST. That's it! After that we will select a winner at random and notify you that you've won!

We've gotta give it to the band for being hard workers. Word on the street is that they're already back in the studio working on album number three which will be available sometime in the spring of 2012. They will also be opening for The Weakerthans at their sold out Bowery Ballroom show on December 9th.

Make sure you grab Breaking Hearts if you haven't already.
