TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Prince Rupert’s Drops, Run Slow

Prince Rupert’s Drops is a Brooklyn band that’s been around for several years now honing their craft, waiting for just the right moment to unleash a perfectly-nuanced collection of jams. And now we have these recordings in all their majesty, care of the brand-new Brooklyn-based label, Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records.

Dig some recent glowing press for Prince Rupert’s Drops:

“…the way the songs of Prince Rupert’s Drops hang together so exquisitely, forming an album that boasts an enormously ear-pleasing equilibrium, equal parts psychedelic strength and folky fragility, balladry merging with badass-ery. Songs long and short, with vocals male and female, merge together in a way that manages to paint a sonic scene of effortless symmetry.”
Revolt of the Apes

“The album is full of creative guitar leads, as well as out there sing a long hooks. With the accompany of male and female lead vocals, each song bends through the album to create universal choir of diverse mixtures.”
Sir Psych’s Psychedelic Shack

“Rare and special is the band that’s just as comfortable writing a catchy 2-minute ditty as playing a 9-minute jammed-out burner. But that’s just the kind of firefly in a bottle Prince Rupert’s Drops have captured on their debut.”
Hidden Track

Run Slow conjures warm thoughts of my favorite psych-rock albums of the ’60s. Yet, perhaps because this album is excellently recorded, mixed, and produced, a modern sound is readily apparent – a vibrant freshness that plants it firmly in the present.”
A Bit of Groovy

“PRD radiates a summery, and at times rootsy, glow that can be pushed to the more burnt end of the spectrum—and back again—without cracking discomfort or losing shape.
Sunrise Ocean Bender

    From the new city great grooves shall be made
    and they will reach Beyond, Beyond and Beyond the shores
    to the ears of  Royals in their Ivory tower
    and a baby shall be born named Price Rupert – Nostradamus

    Who is sexier, Prince, Rupert Murdoch or Frank Reynolds?

    There on the balcony sat none other than Prince Rupert, grinning sheepishly as he devoured a rather large heap of bovarian macaroni and cheese. “Something’s up with my Border Collie!” He cried as he consumed yet another helping of the scrumptious pasta.

    Do you have any Prince Rupert in a can? No.

  • Kyle

    Already stoked for the first Prince Rupert west coast appearance. Aside from the British Columbia mainstay, of course.
