  1. Wow, I guess I’m the only one sitting at home on a Friday night. I’m pretty cool. Regardless, I love Shearwater and Okkervil River.

  2. Oh man, is this a “first comment wins it”-type situation? If it isn’t, I’d love to throw my name in the hat for these records!!! I still can’t believe Shearwater is opening for Coldplay… although as soon as they announced it, it seemed like almost too perfect a pairing. I’d pay, pay, pay to hear Jonathan Meiburg and Chris Martin sing together. *spinechills*

  3. I’m at home on a Friday evening/Saturday morning listening to Trout Mask Replica thinking how amazing that cover is and hoping I win something…

  4. Even in France we love Shearwater… So if the postage is not too expensive for you, I would love to have a vinyl with this great cover !

  5. Don’t know if I’m too late to get in the running for this. If not, please put my name in the hat. Thanks!!!!

  6. How does this work exactly? Is it the wittiest/funniest/most comical? Is it the most insightful/perhaps ironic in some manner? Is it random luck? Or is it the biggest devotees in their representation of his/her devotedness to said band? Or can I just leave a series of periods as my comment? It’s obvious we are all only commenting for the chance to be number one at something for at least one moment, one ephemeral glance at perfection, one instant of the glory of beating out ALL THOSE WHO ARE COMPETING FOR THAT ONE DESIRABLE GOAL!!!!!

    Please enter me in the drawing for one. Please.

  7. I’m a fan with a turntable!!! I’d love a copy of the record or the single!

    How will you ever decide?


  8. Oh man: I would kick a child–a little child–for the opportunity to own this. Hell, I’ll kick anyone you want. Just let me know.

  9. What a deal, eh? I’d love to be put in the hat. I’ll have to buy a better needle, though; if “Rooks” is as good as I think it will be, I want it to really soar.

    Thanks for being one of my daily stops on the web.

  10. If it’s last comment in, I’m currently leading! Otherwise, just tell me who to kick.

  11. i would seriously like to be the proud owner of some shearwater vinyl. please?


  12. Hmm. I missed Okkerville at a festival because I was getting hassled by police. I was looking forward to seeing them the most, after the Cure, of course. While this wouldn’t make up for said lost chance, it sure would help ease the pain.
    Thanks for your consideration.


    P.S. By the way, I missed the Cure as well. Twenty years in preparation. Rather anti-climactic, I would say.

  13. yo aqua drunk, put me down for a chance to win that vinyl. my trusty turntable awaits. sure, it’s in a closet (damn the wife!), but i will free it again! i will!

  14. I can’t wait to see them live. I am a huge fan (with a turntable and a nice set of speakers), Shearwater is much more than Okkervil River’s side project.

  15. Shearwater – one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. I’m also a fan with a turntable who’d love to own the vinyl. Thanks!

  16. Hey, I just heard Shearwater for the first time this week on MPR… was planning on picking it up this week. I guess I’ll wait to see if maybe I can win the vinyl copy!

  17. The vinyl re-issue of “Palo Alto” is one of my most prized pieces of wax…

  18. PLEASE SEND ME A SHEARWATER RECORD!!! Just graduated from college and am moving into my new home. This record would be the perfect house warming gift.

  19. When are the winners announced anyway and how?

    Everything I’ve ever won came out of a cereal box.

  20. Due to drug testing at my workplace, I’ve not been able to smoke weed for six years. This record will help me cope. I have all these repressed emotions coming to the surface and I need the healthy outlet that this particular record would provide!

  21. i’d love the addition for my record collection. I bought the downloads before I knew it was on vinyl…help me out.
