WIN: Handmade Jonsi Mixes

We don't usually do many giveaways. Yet, this offer seemed just a little too special to pass up. Jonsi, who has had an incredible year behind his fantastic XL release Go (Sigur who?) has made (what looks like on paper at least) a pretty stellar mixtape with his boyfriend and bandmate in Riceboy Sleeps Alex. Yet, anyone can make a mixtape. What makes this special is not that it includes a track from John Jacob Niles (kickass), but that each CD is handmade and designed by Jonsi and Alex. We have THREE handmade copies of these little gems for you. Email me at starkny at gmail and we'll pick three names at random. Contest ends Thursday morning. These are super limited edition, and we're psyched to have them ourselves. Tracklist after the jump.

NPR rewarded Jonsi's groundbreaking live spectacle yesterday with an All Things Considered piece which you can listen to HERE. Let's all watch that needle move!
