TVD Vinyl Giveaway:
Mode Moderne,
Occult Delight

Mode Moderne can be likened to aesthetic descendants of indie icons like Joy Division or The Smiths. Their repertoire is filled with catchy riffs on jangly guitars and earworm-choruses, all while avoiding the intellectual absence of popular guitar music.

This Tuesday, January 21, they’ll release their third full-length album Occult Delight on vinyl, and we’ve got a copy to give away.

The release will come out via Light Organ Records.  The album solidifies the band’s sound as texture-heavy melancholy that is often introspective and usually features a soundscape of washed-out guitars and steady rhythms.

So, winning the vinyl, how do you do it? Well, in the comments below, tell us your favorite band that you think takes creative influence from The Smiths. Pre-2004 Modest Mouse is still my jam, so I’m going to go with them.

The winner will be chosen on release day, Tuesday, January 21, and must have a North American mailing address.
