CD Giveaway: Jonsi and Alex’s Rain Down My Favorite Songs
Filed under: Giveaways | Posted by:

We are giving away 5 hard copies of a limited edition cd that Icelandic musicians Jonsi (of Sigur Ros) & Alex (his boyfriend and co-member of Riceboy Sleeps) put together of their 13 favorite songs. They even made the cover artwork themselves! The record features tunes by Django Reinhardt, Billie Holiday and Audrey Hepburn among others (complete tracklisiting is after the jump.) To win a copy, e-mail whenyouawakela @ (subject: Jonsi and Alex) and tell us your address and a song that feels like autumn to you (for instance, I always pull out Van Morrison’s “Astral Weeks” when the leaves start to change). Five winners will be picked and contacted.  If you missed it, Jonsi appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered yesterday talking about his “Hi-Tech Concerts.” Click here to check it out.
