Arms Reach Recordings will be releasing the debut album from Chicago's Dakota/Dakota (ex-Wolfie/The Like Young). Dakota/Dakota is a three piece instrumental band that combines the indie-jazz style of Pele with much more aggressive tunes in the vein of Sweep The Leg Johnny. You can preorder the album which will be out in August at the Arms Reach website (along with the 7" single coming out on Fudge Sickill Records). While you're there you can check out the mp3's from the album. However, if you are the gambling, creative type, here's a listing of the tracks that will appear on the album. Since they are all instrumentals, there are no lyrics. Pick a song and write lyrics to it based off the title. Send them to CONTEST CLOSED with your name and address and the band will sit down and pick the best ones: Hamburger Help Us (MP3) I Hope To God I'm Not A Sheep Indian givers, Cowboy Takers (MP3) Don't Pee In My Bed And Tell Me It's Raining Bruises Are Buttons For Pain No Matter How Hard I Try…I Can Never Remember The Alamo Getting Angry Is The Worst Way To Prove You're Not Drunk Can I Write Something On your Face?
