Hailing from Orange County and Sacramento, California, the Kimberly Trip was formed by guitarist Jeffry-Wynne Prince and drummer Bractune, self-confessed high-school nerds with sci-fi obsessions. Along with vocalist Kimberlina, and bassist Michaelandrew, the Kimberly Trip wraps pointedly funny social observations and introspective confessions around toe-tapping, pogo-inducing rhythms. The single "My Favorite Disaster" is the highlight of the Kimberly Trip’s knife-sharp humorous narratives, an ode to dysfunctional happiness that wears the nerd label like a badge of honor. However, the group has a serious side as well, best exemplified by the haunting "Memory Fades" and the understated ode to better days "Looking Toward the Sun."
"Unicorns, Glitter, & Heartbreak" is the 6th studio album from the band and has been called "A sonic masterpiece; A lo-fi, epic album with an explosive chemistry that is brimming with life-affirming vibes and buoyant rock & roll that is charming and irresistible.”

Frankly, I think they're the best band you haven't become addicted to yet. To prove my point, here are Jeffry-Wynne (guitar/coffee-shop dude), Bractune (drums), Michaelandrew (bass), and Kimberlina (she's the girl who's singing, the nerd behind the counter and the "frenemy") in "Drama @ The Coffeeshop" from that CD up there you are totally going to want to win.

Did I mention that the Kimberly Trip is hitting the road this Spring (2013) for a Pacific Northwest tour?  Yep, so maybe you'll even get to see them live (and oh, man alive, do they ever put on a show!).  The schedule looks like this as of this blog post:
  • April 10th, Salt Lake City UT
  • April 11th, Boise ID
  • April 12th, Portland OR
  • April 13th, Seattle WA
  • April 14th, Eugene OR
  • April 15th, Medford OR
The band is still organizing and booking dates, so if you have a suggestion or request for your area, please let them know.

I know adding to this CD prize pack is like gilding a lily, but what the heck.  I will also be giving away three different 1" art pendants from, one with each CD.
Each CD in Giveaway #4 will come with one of these three Krissi's Art Studio 1" pendants
