CONTEST: Arkells – “Kiss Cam”

As I wrote about yesterday in an Exclaim! news story, Arkells are on tour in support of their recent album Michigan Left. The band will be coming to Vancouver on November 11 for a show at the Commodore Ballroom.

Watch the video for the single “Kiss Cam” below. The song is a swinging, soul-tinged rocker that laments a breakup and longs for the days of kissing in the bleachers with a stadium full of people watching. As for the video, it features a lot of slow motion shots and a distinct lack of making out.

On that note, it’s contest time! I have three prizes to give away courtesy of Universal Music Canada. The grand prize is a signed seven-inch vinyl single (containing the songs “Kiss Cam” and “Whistleblower”) plus a poster and a CD. Two runners up will get a copy of Michigan Left on CD.

To enter the contest, just retweet the post right here. Three winners will be chosen at random. The contest is open from now until Friday afternoon (November 11) at 2 PM PST.

PREMIERE + CONTEST: Elliott BROOD – “If I Get Old”

Elliott BROOD
For the second time, I’m pleased to offer an exclusive performance video. This time it’s from Toronto roots rock outfit Elliott BROOD. The band recently released its third full-length album, Days into Years, via Paper Bag Records. The label filmed the band performing a number of cuts from the disc including this one, “If I Get Old.” Click below to see the trio mourn the passing of time with some help from a guitar, banjo, harmonica, and pattering drums.

Courtesy of Paper Bag Records, I’m also also hosting a contest. I’ll be giving away five copies of the 7″ single Northern Companion, which includes the cuts “Northern Air” and “The Banjo Song.” To enter the contest, just email me at and include the subject line “Elliott BROOD contest.” The first five entries get the goods.

UPDATE: They’re all gone. Thanks to those who entered!
