This week’s contest comes courtesy of Brooklyn’s Temporary Residence, which is giving away CD copies of The BooksThe Way Out and Maserati‘s Pyramid of the Sun to one random winner.

The Way Out is The Books’ fourth album and features more of the duo’s signature cut-and-paste audio collages, rife with subtle, oddball humor and bizarre cultural fragments. Check out a full review of the album and the band’s meticulously crafted live show in a recent ALARM online exclusive.

Pyramid of the Sun combines spacey dance rock with old synth sounds and elements of campy 1970s horror scores — thanks to contributions by Steve Moore of Zombi. Along with The Way Out, it’s one of ALARM’s 100 Unheralded Albums of 2010.

So there you have it: two great albums, one winner. To enter to win, complete the form below.

Update: Contest has ended.
