As we noted yesterday in our full review, “With Urban Turban, Cornershop continue with their welcome and unexpectedly prolific return to the record racks. Collecting the fruitful results of a batch of collaborative singles, this album should easily satisfy old fans, while its playfulness, intelligence, and range will help recruit new ones.”
“…Urban Turban’s best moments present a further deepening of Singh’s and Ayers’ pop ingenuity. If they’ve always successfully avoided the shallowness of pastiche, they also seem to have found a way to increase the frequency of their output without putting any strain on the level of quality.”
“Urban Turban…still shines as another exceptional collection of tunes from a consistently rewarding group of pop scientists. And it’s an album certain to only improve with increased familiarity.”
It’s true. We like it quite a bit and in tandem with the band and their label Ample Play, we’ve assembled one heck of a giveaway for two winners.
Not only do we have a copy of the new Urban Turban on vinyl to put in the hands of two of you, but we also have a set of gorgeous, one-of-a-kind Singhles Club Screenprints (shown above) to add to the mix for each winner as well.
The set of 6 screen prints are 7″ single size and all are unique and one-of-a-kind, screened on various high quality textured paper stocks with different color ink types, courtesy of Gary Parselle. The artists behind the 6 prints are Annie Atkins & Astrid Edwards, Sroop Sunar, Rude, Nick Edwards, Monica Fraile, and Rocket Science, and all taken after a song off of Urban Turban.
Enter to win a copy of Cornershop’s brand new LP Urban Turban and the set of Singhles Club 7″ Screenprints by naming your suggestion for the most original, one-of-a-kind piece of art in the comments below. The two of you with one-of-a-kind inspiration will receive both the LP and the set of prints.
Oh, and that stuff about always needing a North American mailing address? We’ll ship to the States and our friends in the UK too for this special giveaway! A winner will be selected one week from today, on Wednesday, May 23rd.
