Free Music Giveaway Contest

Free Music Contest!!!

In the recent past, I have acquired a few free digital downloads that accompanied various vinyl records I have purchased.  For most of these, I already owned a digital copy, and my free digital downloaded zip files have been sitting on my computer, waiting for a home.  So, I'm going to give them away as part of a contest.

The Goods:

J. Tillman - A Year in the Kingdom [2009]
Tied for my #1 of the album last year.  Read my review here.

Damien Jurado - Caught in the Trees [2008]
 #39 on my top albums of the decade list . . . probably should have been a LOT higher.

The Format - Dog Problems [2006]
#8 on my top albums of the decade list.  The album release show in Phoenix was also one of my favorite concerts of all time.

The Rules:

1. Post a promotion for this blog on your blog, myspace, facebook or other internet site.

2. Send me an email with the link to your post (musicsnobsanonymous[at]

3. In about a month, I will randomly select a winner who will receive a zip file of ONE of these albums (your choice).

4. From there, the process will be repeated for the remaining albums.

5. This is a free and legal copy of the album, downloaded legally, never used by me and yours to keep.

Please spread the word about the contest and the blog!
