Nothing sounds quite as good as a giveaway.
On Murfie, we’ve got tons of albums in the marketplace (literally—tons!), just hangin’ out, waiting to be bought and listened to. We thought we’d give these lil’ fellas a quicker chance to be enjoyed—as they’re supposed to be—by giving them away to one lucky winner each week!
On #FreeFriday, one of our Murfie staffers will give you the rundown about a cool album in our marketplace. For a chance to win the album, all you gotta do is read the post, then share on social media at least one of these ways (the more you share, the better your chance):
- Share this blog post on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #FreeFriday (visibility settings on public)
- Retweet one of the #FreeFriday tweets we send via @murfiemusic
- Share our #FreeFriday Facebook post (in a public post)
Enough with the nitty gritty details. Now on to the free album we’re featuring!
Chutes too Narrow (The Shins, 2003)
Are you a lover of great indie rock? I’m talking about the fun, undeniably poppy, sing-along kind of indie rock, with just the proper amount of introspective lyrics and deep textured sounds. If that sounds right to you, then your collection will not be complete without Chutes too Narrow by The Shins.
James Mercer, lead singer and songwriter of the Shins and frontman of the newer indie rock outfit Broken Bells, is one of the best lyric writers that I’ve ever heard. His songs are saturated with imagery, and are mercilessly honest about the way people are. The songs on this album flow together quite well—the track list gives you plenty of opportunity to groove along with the hooky, melodic upbeat tunes, mixed with enough downtime during the more subtle songs. This album contains some of The Shins’ most popular and recognizable songs, but since every song is so different and unique, you’ll never get bored.
Share this post in one of the ways listed above, and I’ll let you know if you’re the winner on Monday! Best of luck!
