CONTEST – Forest City Lovers’ Phodilus and Tyto 7″

Image via Forest City LoversForest City LoversThough the names sound like they’re drawn from some grand and ancient Greek tragedy, Phodilus and Tyto (as in Tytonidae) are actually the genus names of bay owls and barn owls, respectively, and are also the title and a-side of the new single from Forest City Lovers. It’s the band’s first release since 2008’s beautiful Haunting Moon Sinking and while it’s only two songs, it more than demonstrates that the band is continuing to hone and refine their distinctive folk-pop and album number three, currently in production and due out next year, is sure to be worth the wait.

They just took delivery of Phodilus and Tyto on 7″ and also have it available digitally, and courtesy of the band I have one of the 7″s to give away. To throw your hat in the proverbial ring, email me at contests AT with “I love forests and cities and vinyl” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. Contest open to anyone anywhere and will close at midnight, December 4.

While work continues on the new record, live shows are scarce but it seems they’re planning to head to Austin in March for SxSW. A little closer to now, a video for “If I Were A Tree” from the single will be out imminently and both sides are available to stream at the band’s MySpace.
