A few weeks ago, we put out an open call for up-and-coming bands to submit their projects to YouJustGetMe to be considered for a place as a YJGM Featured User. We've gotten some fascinating responses - some amazing, and some quite breathakingly, um, not amazing. However, one act in particular stood head and shoulders above the best, and we're proud to feature them before the inevitable media blitz stars. YouJustGetMe is proud to introduce you to your new favorite band: UK/Portland act Monoliths!
A project of Soft Tags multi-insturmentalist Tim Yates, Monoliths evokes the electro-folk tenderness of the Postal Service and the party-ready beats of Ratatat. It's vast, psychedelic, hopeful, and international - Monolith's work has been recorded and performed in such far-flung locales as Iceland, San Francisco, and Portland. Soon, it'll be playing on your radio too!
Entering the contest is fun, fast, and easy. First, go check out YouJustGetMe.com/Monoliths and read the hints Mr. Yates left about his personality. Then, click "Guess Monoliths now!" and see how well his profile conveyed his actual personality. Be sure to register - that's how you'll save your guess and be entered in the contest!
The winner will receive a Monoliths prize pack - including the rare B-sides compilation Epaulet - and a personalized YouJustGetMe mug!
Hurry up and enter - the contest closes at 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, 6 June. In the interim Become a fan of Monoliths on Facebook - it'll probably help you to just get Monoliths a little better - and maybe get some prizes out of it, too!
