Today's gratuitous but awesome giveaway is brought to you by the folks behind the new site becausesoundmatters.com. Music collectors who love to buy new music on vinyl will find lots to love here, a site that gathers all of Warner Music Group's labels' in-print releases in one spot. That includes giant Warner Bros. itself, as well as more boutique-style imprints Sire, Reprise, and Nonesuch.
That means new, fresh pressings of classic albums like Black Sabbath's self-titled debut and Neil Young's Prairie Wind (BTW, order anything Neil Young right now and get a free "Heart of Gold" seven-inch), alongside indie classics like Built to Spill's Keep it Like a Secret and Wilco's Summerteeth double LP. Of course, too, there are a number of new, limited-edition releases. Check out, for instance, a deluxe edition of the Black Key's new album, Brothers, which is a double-LP bundled with a bonus CD and poster, or the new Deftones albums, Diamond Eyes, which comes on white vinyl with a download card.
BecauseSoundMatters has given us a copy of the White Stripes' Under Great Northern Lights, and it could be yours to keep. The live album serves as a soundtrack for the band's documentary of the same name, and comes on two 180-gram discs in a gatefold jacket.
To win it, leave a comment on this entry with a valid e-mail address in the "E-mail" field of the comment form (not in the body of the message), naming your favorite White Stripes song. We'll run the giveaway until noon this Friday, June 4, when we'll draw a winner at random.
