Today is another bleak day for music with the revelation that British entertainment retailer HMV is set to enter administration. According to the newspapers, the internet's to blame. However, isn't it the internet that helps us discover music, films, games and more - the very things that are sold in HMV? Perhaps, that's too big of a question for a Monday so here are some free tunes instead - but please remember to buy music when you can!
As of today, Google Play will be giving away a "Single Of The Week" for free. Their inaugural complementary download is Don Broco's 'Fancy Dress'. What makes Google's gift even better is that you can also buy the band's 'Priorities' album for just £4.49.
'Fancy Dress' is available for free download from Google Play for the next seven days.
If you already own Don Broco's 'Fancy Dress' and need some new alternative rock for your music collection, why not check out Atrium's latest offering 'The City'. They may not be supported by one of the world's biggest companies, but they're still giving away a free digital track on their BandCamp - freshly uploaded today.
You can get 'The City' for yourself following the links below.
For those of you who are in a more mellow mood, Christine Donaldson's 'Renegade' will probably suit you better. Accompanied with a snowy video, this soft and soothing song is perfect to warm you up on an icy winter day - and it's made even more comforting because it's free.
You can download 'Renegade' for free via BandCamp.
