As we’ve mentioned once or a hundred times over the past few months, Tegan & Sara’s new record Sainthood drops on October 27 (or October 23 in Australia). Intern Emily and I have provided an in depth analysis of the new album which will enhance your already-burning desire to own a copy for yourself.
We’re counting down the days ’til we can start memorising liner notes and playing with our ink blots — but in the meantime, we’ve got two announcements concerning everybody’s favourite twins!
1. In addition to the review, sometime over the next few days we’re gonna be publishing a little T&S treat. I’m not going to tell you what it is, just that it may or may not change your life.
2. Thanks to the lovely folks at Warner Australia, we now have 10 copies of Sainthood to give away.
How to become a winner:
You already are, no matter what anyone says. But if I’m going to queue for hours at the post office to mail your album, it’s only fair that you do a little bit of work to win it. There’s no skill or real effort involved, all you have to do is this:
1. Read Autostraddle’s review of Sainthood here.
2. Become a fan of Autostraddle’s facebook page.
3. Follow Autostraddle on twitter.
4. Paste this message into a tweet:
I read @Autostraddle ‘s review of @theteganandsara ‘s album Sainthood and want to win a copy! — http://snurl.com/sko56 #WinSainthood
See? Easy! Unless you don’t have a twitter account, in which case you should start one and follow us. Or just ask one of your mum / girlfriend / bestie to do the tweeting for you.
UPDATE: It’s come to my attention that if you have your twitter account locked then we won’t be able to see your entry. If you’re one of these people, email me (crystal at autostraddle dot com) with a screenshot of your tweet so that I know you’ve entered.
The competition closes at midnight on October 31st and winners will be drawn out of Laneia’s fedora shortly after. Please, only one entry per twitter account.
Be warned: winners will need to allow at least 7 – 10 days for the CD to arrive in the post, as I live in a far far away land where the mail is delivered in the pouch of a boxing kangaroo.
I want to tell everyone that I still haven’t listened to the album
I really just love you right now. So, so much, enough to step out of lurkdom and tell you, even. <3
Drawn out of a fedora? Fantastic!
If it is drawn out of a fedora… do we get to hear Laneia’s amazing sound effects again? Or atleast someone’s sound effects?
Maybe if you ask very nicely then Laneia will oblige and draw the winners for this competition. Otherwise you’ll have to settle for me, and I am nowhere near as cute as she is.
I vote Laneia as the official person to pull winners names out of a fedora for all times.
This isn’t a democracy; it’s a cheerocracy!
i second…third…and fourth this!!!! :D
We have just solved Crystal’s “I don’t want to be on a video” problem. Well done, TEAM! Are you ready?
Should someone tell Laneia? I feel like she maybe needs to agree or something.
I’m a fan, a follwer and have tweeted. I’m ready to win.
I WANT to re-tweet that, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I’ve already pre-ordered my copy… so, good luck everyone!
I think Laneia, should draw the names, too. She’s so cute drawing papers out of hats. This is true!
Laneia has agreed! She is going to draw the winners for this competition.
can i win in canada?
Yes! This competition is open to all countries.
I TYPED IN “TEGAN AND SARA TOUR AUSTRALIA SAINTHOOD” on google and this comes up! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Although I do hope they come back to AU, Please fill me in with the details if they do!
i feel like if you’re a reader of autostraddle you probs already have this cd. but i fully support free stuff. free stuff is cool.
