The Summer's Ending Prize Pack::
Update: Congratulations to AGP reader/follwer Joseph Callahan of Portsmouth, NH for winning the Summer's Ending Prize Pack. Thanks to all who entered.
We have recently purged the small drawer in our tiny office where we've been keeping and collecting music earmarked for a future giveaways. Well, with the arrival of Labor Day Weekend and Hurricane Earl we thought there would be no time like the present to give said music to one of our readers. Mom always did say it pays to read!
As summer begins fade, the school buses start rolling through town, and we get ready for some anticipated fall releases we would like to gift you with four albums that have spent considerable time on our CD player, turntable, and ipods over the recent weeks and months.
Within this nifty little prize pack you shall find:
+ Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Let it Sway (Polyvinyl)
+ Wavves - King of The Beach (Fat Possum)
+ Black Helicopter - Don't Fuck With The Apocalypse (Ecstatic Peace)
+ Male Bonding - Nothing Hurts (Sub-Pop)
Enter to win these fine recorded goods by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with The Summers Ending in the subject line. The winner will be drawn at random on Monday (Labor Day) at 12PM.
As always thanks for reading and supporting this blog.
With two solo releases and a Circus Devils album already issued this year and an upcoming release from Boston Spaceships due next week, one things clear, the reunion of the Guided by Voices' classic line up has not altered Bob Pollard's hyper prolific release schedule. Come February Pollard will release Waving At The Astronauts with Lifeguards, a collaboration with former (late era) GBV guitarist Doug Gillard. We'll get our first listen to the forthcoming album when Serious Business Records releases the Product Head 7" b/w Naught Windsor on October 5th. Waving At Astronauts is the follow up to Lifeguards debut LP, Mist King Urth.

Lerners' Telekinesis' will come armed with songs off the bands excellent 2009 debut as well as the just issued Parallel Seismic Conspiracies EP. The new 5 song EP will be officially released on October 26, however the digital version is on sale now at the bands label, Merge Records. The EP compiles the Dirty Thing 7" as well as a couple of covers, including a damn fine version of GBV's Game of Pricks.
