I got my Merchbox last night!
Well that was fast… Just a week ago I signed up for this amazing service/product through freeindie called Merchbox. Oh so you want to know what it’s all about? Well then, let me tell you. Basically, you pay 10 bucks a month to get a little surprise package of music each month! But it’s not just any music. When you sign up, you get a follow up email that asks you a few questions in which you get to include 3 bands you like to listen to. Then everything you get it based off of that! They even have an option for vinyl.
okayokayokayokay. back to MY Merchbox though. As you can see in the picture, I got two CD’s a blue razz berry lollipop, a free indie sticker shaped like a cassete tape, and a super strange, random pack of American Gladiator cards. It was a fun little package to open! The two albums I got were Oceanics - Bright People and The Ugly Club - You Belong To The Minutes. I haven’t listened to ‘em yet, but I will be sure to today and let you guys know what I think!
I definitely recommend checking out this service! And if you don’t have the money or whatever, then at least go follow freeindie on Tumblr! They highlight a few independent artists through out the week and feature three free downloadable songs per artist. It’s great. You’ll be the number one hipster in no time.
