TVD Vinyl and Signed Print Giveaway: Kavinsky, Outrun

If you were born before or during the ’80s, you’re liable to dig on comic books, leather jackets, or movies that had their initial release on VHS.  It’s not the individual items that are important, but the cultural context that surrounds them that we love so much. Lucky for nostalgia fiends craving an ’80s aesthetic, Kavinsky just released his retro-tastic album Outrun.

Kavinsky is a dance producer who feels just as much at home around nostalgic sounds as with his dance rhythms and hi-end production.  His tracks are full of FM synthesizers, punchy snares, and chord progressions that will remind you of movies of girls with big poofy hair and gnarly fashion. We’ve got a vinyl copy of Outrun to give away and a signed poster (printed on “photo paper”—sounds fancy).

Following a string of singles and EPs, Outrun is Kavinsky’s first full-length. The album’s lead single “Nightcall” was co-produced by SebastiAn and Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk, lending it some heavy scene cred.  After getting on the Drive soundtrack, the song got some heavy YouTube viewage, so it seems that Kavinsky’s warm retro sounds are here to stay.

How can you get your hands on the vinyl and rad autographed poster? It’s simple!  In the comments below, tell us your favorite ’80s movie. I’m calling that magnificent Bruce Campbell/Sam Raimi collab The Evil Dead.

A winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen on Friday, March 29.

    Say, if I win this giveaway, any chance I could get a Testarossa as well?

    The Return of the Living Dead. Not only the best 80’s movie, but the best zombie movie of all time. Of course, that’s just my opinion 🙂

    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
    Having been born in the nineties, my repertoire is limited. But this flick always was a winner in my book.

    Take everything that was awesome about the 80s, put it in one movie and you get Rad.
