It's strange that a simple little word like "win" can be a meme in this day and age. Just look at Charlie Sheen blowing up Twitter with his "winning" quotes, or that Paul Giamatti flick Win Win which has a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score! Then there's the acronym FTW. No, not Fuck The What. For The Win. Shucks, even TV is mostly about winning. Just look at your TV Guide... a large portion of the listings are for reality shows and contests (singing, dancing, um... talent-ing). Let's not even get started on ratings. Everywhere you look someone is winning and yet lots of people are losing. Luckily for us, we don't focus on losers. We're a positive kind of place where we only share the best and the brightest.

Which brings me to Vice Records super-trio, Win Win. The group consists of XXXChange, Devlin (a Spank Rock tour DJ), and video artist Ghostdad. As if recently singing to Vice wasn't enough, the group have embarked on a Scion A/V supported tour and released a remix EP entitled VICTIM which features vocals from Blaqstarr. The EP contains the original version and remixes from Gigamesh, Black Lips, Post Rikers Rapp Starrs, and Them Jeans. And it's free for download right here!

If you like these tunes then you can support the group by checking these guys out on the road.
