Get Your Own Official Gardens & Villa Flute!

Much ado has been made of the flutesmanship of Gardens & Villa’s Chris Lynch. And for good reason. The instrument has quickly carved out its own nook in both the band’s synth-funk delights and its spacious cosmo-pop. Lynch’s quiver of flutes (along with Shane McKillop’s Michael Jackson-stenciled bass cabinet) is one of several eccentricities that make a Gardens & Villa show special. Now, you can have your very own official Gardens & Villa flute — laser-engraved no less!

This week, G&V embarks on a US tour with Youth Lagoon, and we’ve supplied select independent record shops all along the way with these flutes, all of which include a download card for an exclusive non-album track called “Hailey.” It’s a sock-hop, slow-dance number with a sweet little flute riff. If you buy Gardens & Villa’s debut on CD or LP at a participating stores (see the list after the jump) over the next few weeks, you’ll receive one of these flutes (while supplies last). And you can play the riff to “Hailey” or “Orange Blossom” or that jazz club scene from Anchor Man all damn day long.
