Enter To Win Two Albums from The O's [Giveaway]

3 Minute Record is proud to present another super giveaway from our friends at 1888 Media! This time we are offering a FREE copy of The O’s new album Between The Two on vinyl and a FREE copy of their début album We Are The O’s on CD for one lucky winner!

Back in February, we favorably reviewed the latest release from The O's, Between The Two. You can listen to a track from the album there as well as see a video for their cover of the Everly Brothers "Bowling Green." During the review process we found that both Taylor Young and John Pedigo play some interesting instruments in The O's.

HERE'S HOW TO WIN: What instrument does one of the members play that you don't see pop up on the liner notes of many albums? Please leave a comment below with your answer. Comments will not be published until after the contest has ended. The winner will be chosen via random number generator. The deadline for the giveaway is Friday, April 29 at 5 p.m. An announcement to the winners will be published Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Until then, check out the recent music video for "We’ll Go Walkin’" from their 2011 album Between The Two. 

You can also catch The O's on tour! They have been touring this spring in support of the new album and if you haven't already caught one of their shows here are some chances; even if you're reading this from overseas in the UK.
