[BSTOM: The Bishop Allen Monthstravaganza Contest]
Though it isn't that time of the month when Bishop Allen release a new four-track wonder, it is time for the two of us here at Both Sides of the Mouth to hold another (our second) contest. If you don't remember what the kids of Bishop Allen are up to, let me take this time to bring you up to speed. Bishop Allen is a band that hails from the bowels of Brooklyn, and decided to take a bit of a break after releasing their debut hit and highly-acclaimed/blogged about album Charm School. During their break, they brewed about and composed tons upon tons of songs for the track list of their next claimant, Clementines. Well, Bishop Allen are (currently) label-less, so what are they gonna do as their second full-length waits for release? Why they're going to a pop out an EP every month of course! The guys are currently seven months in, and not one disc comes to disappoint. Each and every month showcases Bishop Allen's flair for creativity and individual style on top of the plain and simple fact that these kids are just great storytellers.

So, the contest. Alina and I have decided to be awfully generous this time and have decided to put out not one, not two, not even three, but ALL SEVEN of the currently available EPs put out by Bishop Allen. Seven. Yeah, we're in shock too, especially since this is coming out of our pockets - but we love you all that much. To enter just send us an email with your mailing address and the subject "BSOTM Contest". Could it really be that easy? Actually, yes - we're too lazy to do anything beyond the idea of just randomly picking a winner out (but if you leave us a comment we'd love you even more). The winner will be announced on Friday, September 22nd. Good luck guys!
