Rafter's new EP, which is sweaty, magical, and ergo very appropriately titled Sweaty Magic, is available for order right now. It's the perfect booty-shaking disc for college students returning to dorm halls, or 75 year old veteran dancers wanting to shake up the weekly shuffleboard-a-thon.
But unfortunately, as visceral as this little EP is, compact discs are limited in that they convey only sound, not visuals. Enter: You. And YouTube. And cash. Lots of cash.
and our friends Microcinema invite you to create a music video for one of three Rafter songs. Below are three links. Download the mp3s, pick your favorite song and make a music video. Upload your music video to YouTube and add it to the Rafter Sweaty Magic Group. A specially selected panel of celebrity judges, including Dan Deacon, , Christine Starkman, The Liars, Yo Gabba Gabba, Leslie Hall, and Adrian Grenier, will judge the videos.
The contest begins August 27th and will run until 11:59 PM EST on November 15th, 2008. We'll announce winners at http://asthmatickitty.com on December 1st, 2008.
