TVD Vinyl Giveaway: 2:54, S/T

Right on the heels of the Scarlet EP last fall and the new album’s first single “You’re Early” last month, the ladies of 2:54 release their eponymous debut LP today via Fat Possum, and we would love to send a copy to one lucky reader.

“Creeping” was debuted earlier this month by Zane Lowe on BBC’s Radio 1, and next week, London-based sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow kick off their thirteen date North American headlining tour with support from Widowspeak after a festival stint, a few UK dates, and lending support to The xx. Busy, busy!

Stereogum has described 2:54 as is “a pair of British blood sisters with shoegazer and eyeliner smeared all over their music,” and mentions how they named themselves after a specific moment in “A History of Bad Men,” at their favorite (and totally fierce) part of their favorite Melvins song.

For a chance to win the new album, tell us in the comments, your favorite band named for another band’s song.

I’m going with Spoon, who were named after a track from Can.

A winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen a week from today, on Tuesday, June 5th.

    The Sisters of Mercy took their name from the Leonard Cohen song “Sisters of Mercy” off “Songs of Leonard Cohen.” Though I don’t normally think of Sisters of Mercy and Leonard Cohen I was always amused by the association.
