TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Dot Hacker, Inhibition (On color vinyl!)

00

(only for U.S. residents)

Enter to win the color vinyl version of Dot Hacker’s Inhibition by letting us know in the comments below what band you might have slept on—however briefly—only to have them become a true favorite. The most egregious error of oversight will find the vinyl in his or her mailbox with a North American address. We’ll choose one winner a week from today, 5/9! (Click here to comment)

Here’s a true story—of the hundreds of emails I tend to receive weekly regarding TVD, the ones with links to Mp3s for preview all get funneled into one folder—unheard. Then come Sunday, I plow through them all and choose the tracks we’ll feature for Monday’s Press Play piece, and in tandem with what’s often a chore—Saturday nights often run late, y’know—I choose TVD’s “Single of the Week.”

A few weeks back I experienced what I can only call “Single of the Week Remorse.” It should have been Dot Hacker’s “Inhibition” from the LP of the same name. It’s got everything I look for in (most) tracks…atmosphere, depth, lush, moody and ethereal vocals. And a sinewy hook that stayed top of mind for days. However, don’t take my word for it, have a listen:

To make up for my oversight and perhaps as penance, we’ve got a gorgeous copy of Inhibition of glorious color vinyl to award one of you.

Right, that’s it there…a beauty, hm?

A brief bio, courtesy of our friends at ORG Music: ”The music of Dot Hacker is architectural, built on a foundation of bold, manipulated tones and supported by lush eclectic textures and angular rhythm. The band’s enigmatic sound comes from the collaboration of friends and founding members, Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner and Jonathan Hischke.

Right, that’s it there…a beauty, hm?


Before forming Dot Hacker in 2008, the four were already established musicians, recording and touring with an impressive list of respected artists including: Beck, Gnarls Barkley, PJ Harvey, Charlotte Gainsbourg, The Butthole Surfers and Broken Bells amongst many others. Klinghoffer, the band’s lead vocalist, also currently plays guitar in The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band plans to play shows in 2012 to support the release of their debut album.”
