Do you need a "mixtape for the middle of a long road trip" or "mixtape for getting up very early in the morning when you have had little sleep and you feel like you want to vomit"? Read on for all 10 and the super-simple Twitter contest entry rules.
Dreamy indie-pop makers with a brutal metal heart, An Horse bandmates Kate Cooper and Damon Cox are ready to fulfill your mixtape requests.
To enter the giveaway, follow @Spinner on Twitter (so we can message you!) and reply @Spinner to this Tweet with the number of your favorite mixtape and the hashtag #AnHorseMixtape. The giveaway begins at 4:30PM Eastern Time ("ET") on July 25, 2011 and ends at 5PM ET on July 29, 2011. Winners will be chosen at random and notified on or about July 30, 2011. Be sure to read the official contest rules.
What mixtape should An Horse make? Read their ideas below:
#1. Mixtape for walking really fast to avoid someone (e.g. your neighbour who has recently told you a ghost haunting his house gave him diarrhea).
#2. Mixtape for trying to keep a steady pace while looking good (put this on when you want to walk past someone you are trying to impress. Good to use when the person you are trying to impress works in a public establishment. NOTE: Don't use too often. If you are pacing outside their place of employment you will get arrested).
#3. Mixtape for the middle of a long road trip (Put this on at the point where you are thinking of turning around but realise it's just as far to head back as it is to finish the godforsaken drive. NOTE: Best used in long drives that involve desert. There may even be a audio track that is a friendly reminder to refuel).
#4. Mixtape for heavy traffic and a near empty gas tank (Note: Best used when you have a wingman who also suffers from road rage).
#5. Mixtape for summer BBQ-ing (Note: We mean the actual cooking of flesh or faux-flesh. It should be played on a device set up next to the BBQ. Not too close, dummy. You don't want it to melt).
#6. Mixtape for when you wake up and you realise you have run out of coffee (Note: This mixtape also works if you woke up and realised you were out of coffee AND it was your job to get coffee and your significant other is pissed about it. If this is the case just play it a lot louder).
#7. Mixtape for inspiring confidence that you will not get charged excess baggage at the airport check in desk. (Note: DO NOT PLAY THIS WHILE TRYING TO CHECK IN. You will get arrested. Play on the drive to the airport).
#8. Mixtape for blocking out really annoying people on a flight (Note: Best used if your headphones have some kind of noise spill. It's passive aggressive but approaching this otherwise will usually mean you are cuffed to your seat in the place by a US Air Marshall).
#9. Mixtape for getting up very early in the morning when you have had little sleep and you feel like you want to vomit (Note: This should be played once you have a coffee. If you try and do anything before a coffee you will hate it, yourself and indeed the world).
#10. Mixtape for lamenting the fact you have to go away from somewhere or someone you love (Note: This mixtape is a total bummer).
