TVD Vinyl Giveaway:
of Montreal, Lousy With Sylvianbriar (Signed)

Though the name may be deceiving, of Montreal isn’t a Canadian band. 

Rather, the self-described “thin/primitive” sounding band hails from Athens, Georgia. Supposedly named after a failed romance with a woman from Montreal, Canada, of Montreal has just released their latest album Lousy with Sylvianbriar today, October 8, through Polyvinyl Records. The name for the album is an homage to the poetry of Sylvia Plath, which served as an inspiration behind some of the tracks, according to frontman Kevin Barnes’ Tumblr.

Today marks the release of the indie-rock band’s twelfth album. In honor of its release, we’re giving away a signed copy of Lousy with Sylvianbriar!

of Montreal will embark on a U.S. tour to promote the new album, beginning in their hometown of Athens, Georgia, on October 18. Tour dates are listed below.

To win a signed copy of Lousy With Sylvianbriar, drop a comment below naming your favorite song with a city name in its title. Mine would have to be “For Baltimore” by All Time Low.

A winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen one week from today, on Tuesday, October 15.
