New Cool Collection: Podcast Guests

In the Murfie marketplace, we’ve hand-picked collections of albums for you to shop, which we call Cool Collections. They’re over on the left sidebar of the shop for you to browse.

But hey, you know that already—so it’s time to introduce our newest collection, Podcast Guests!

Man, I can’t believe it’s been over two years since the Murfie Podcast started! Our first ever Murfie Podcast featured Josh Harty, which we published on January 10th, 2012. Since then, we’ve continually been amazed at the awesome interviews we’ve landed, and have been more than happy to introduce to you some musicians and bands who are on their way to the top.

Hit up the Podcast section of our blog to take a trip down memory lane. Then, stock up on the musical goodness we’ve gathered together—albums by artists from Everest to Eric Hutchinson, from Amy Ray to Pure Prairie League, and most recently Zoë Keating, who have all been taken the time to record an interview with us.

Every album you buy is ready to stream not only on the web, but on iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets with our app, as well as Sonos and VOCO devices. At Murfie, you’re streaming 320kbps mp3, which is excellent quality. Check out our new lossless streaming service too (released on Sonos last week!). You can also download any album in your Murfie collection in mp3, aac, FLAC and ALAC, and have it shipped to your door.

Declutter Your CD Collection

Decluttering your home, your office, and any other space you occupy is proven to reduce stress. It frees up time for you to do other things, and it gives you more mental clarity.

People with cluttered spaces spend more time looking for things, and sometimes they are even antisocial, afraid to let friends and family see the piles of mess they’ve created.

The task of decluttering your house can seem overwhelming. Where do you start? When will you ever be finished? There are some tricks we can share based on experience—and the thing to remember is that even when you accomplish the task of decluttering, you need to maintain your state of non-clutter!

The first trick to decluttering your home is to pick a single room to start, or certain area of the room if that’s easier for you—and we at Murfie would recommend starting with your old CD collection!

How many CDs have you accumulated over the years, and where are they located? In piles on your desk? On shelves? In plastic bins in your basement or attic, under your bed, or in your closet? What if you could still keep the music from all those CDs you bought, but get the physical clutter out of your life?

If you send your CDs to Murfie, we’ll store them on our shelves for you. We’ll rip your entire collection and post it to your online account where it’s available for you to stream and download. Your CDs will always remain yours, unless you decide you don’t want them anymore—in which case you can sell them to make some cash, or trade them away for other albums you would prefer to have.

With Murfie, you can give your old CD collection new life by upgrading it to the 21st century. Stream your CDs anywhere you go with our iOS and Android apps, and in any web browser with our Web Player right on the site. Into home listening systems? Check out our partnership with Sonos, and listen on any of their devices too. Murfie’s streaming is set at 320kbps—which is the best quality streaming that mp3 provides—and you don’t need to pay a subscription for it. I think the word you’re looking for here is….huzzah!

The simple fact that you actually own the CDs you send to Murfie, and any additional CDs you buy in our marketplace, allows you to have unparalleled access to your music. If downloads are your thing, rest easy knowing that you can download your collection in mp3, aac, or lossless formats FLAC and ALAC. Heck, if you want those files on a hard drive, we’ll even do that for you too.

It’s true—decluttering does wonders, as does seeing what once was a bulky bin of discs now displayed on the screen of your iPad, easy searchable and instantly playable. Visit our site and find out what the buzz is all about—and check out a service that’s perfectly fitted for audiophiles, declutterers, and music-lovers all around. :-)
