That’s right, we’re turning ya’ll into bossy bottoms or total tops as we make you decide between self-titled debuts form synthpop duo La Roux or Nelly Furtado-flavored Anjulie.
There may be seasoned performers competing for our affection this week, but we’re so sure that the strong debuts from these artists will gain a place in the hearts of the GLBT that we’re giving away both albums!
To familiarize yourself with Anjulie, pick up the October issue of Instinct for an exclusive interview with the balmy, jazz-tinted Canadian singer/songwriter.
