Sometimes, in fact most of the time, words cannot adequately describe the music we're trying to tell you about, and they're especially inadequate when it comes to The Sways. So praise be for The Sways, because they've decided to help us out here by giving away copies of their album to our lucky readers.

Closing date for entries is 9th December. Good luck.
