TVD’s 10 Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways: Ben Kweller, Go Fly a Kite

The week of Record Store Day is finally upon us!  While that means our 10 Weeks of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways will soon be coming to an end, fear not—there’s still some great vinyl left to win.  Today we have a copy of Ben Kweller’s newest album, Go Fly a Kite, to give to one lucky TVD reader.

Go Fly a Kite, which hit shelves in February, is the debut release on Kweller’s own record label, The Noise Company.  The singer-songwriter’s fifth studio album doesn’t stray too far from the infectious power-pop, indie-rock sound featured on its predecessors.  This is definitely a good thing.  Paste describes the record as “lively and cheerful,” going on to note that Go Fly a Kite is “pretty exciting; Kweller should be pleased with how it turned out. It’s spirited, energetic and competent power-pop.”

Go Fly a Kite also sounds like it was strongly influenced by the likes of Ben Folds Five, the Beatles, and Weezer, among others.  Consequence of Sound writes, “He clearly isn’t trying to hide his influences or affection for classic artists, but he possesses enough wit and prowess to take something great and recreate it without sounding like a rip-off artist.”

For your chance to win, comment below and tell us your favorite most influential artist.

I’m going with the late, great, Jimi Hendrix.

A winner with a North American mailing address will be selected a week from today, on Wednesday, April 25th.

    Hmm… I would go with the Beatles, but I almost feel like that’s cheating. =) So I’m going to choose George Harrison because of his guitar playing and song writing skills.
