Blues Sampler Album FREE @ Google Play

If you are in the market for free music, then you have come to the right place. I ran across this Blues Sampler Album called “Play: Blues Pioneers” for FREE at Google Play. This is a Google ‘released’ album that you cannot get anywhere else though you may be able to buy the songs individually elsewhere.

I really know so little about Blues that I cannot possibly due credit to this deal. I will say that each song is by a different artist and you can sample each song before you download the album. Read the rest of this entry »

Google Play Album of the Week: Sonic Highways by Foo Fighters – 99¢

Posted by on July 12, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Google Play Album of the Week: Sonic Highways by Foo Fighters   99¢

Google Play has a new album of the week steeply discounted! This week, you can purchase Sonic Highways by the Foo Fighters for just 99¢.

I am completely unfamiliar with this album. Although I know of the band (hasn’t everyone heard of them) I have never really listened to their music. The album has 8 songs on it. Your purchase price works out to just over 12¢ per song! Songs on Goggle Play Store retail for $1.29 each as you can see. If you were to buy these songs separately, then you would pay more for one song than you would for the entire album.

I price compared this album with both other digital and physical copies. iTunes Canada sells the same album for $6.99 and a physical copy at Amazon Canada would cost you $10. Even compared to the digital copy, Google Play’s price is far superior.

Your new album features the following eight songs:

  1. Something From Nothing
  2. The Feast and The Famine
  3. Congregation
  4. What Did I Do?/God As My Witness
  5. Outside
  6. In The Clear
  7. Subterranean
  8. I Am A River

The album has overwhelmingly good reviews with a 4.6/5 star rating on Google Play with over 4000 reviews. One reviewer said:

Pure class again How the foo’s keep delivering more and better just defies belief. Dave didn’t just pop in the studio and presto another album of more the same, its a masterpiece of musical depth inspired from his road trip for the American Rock …

I listened to a few songs including the popular Something From Nothing but they are just not my cup of rock. However, if they are your cup of rock, then this is a fantastic deal you will not want to miss out on. You can preview each and every song before purchasing the album if you want to get a feel for their music. I do have to say that these Google Play album deals are super sweet and I cannot wait to see what they offer next.

Hey Moosers, do you like Foo Fighters? If so, what is your favourite song?

60-Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

Posted by on July 5, 2015 at 6:30 PM

60 Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

As if in response to Apple Music finally moving to Canada, Google Play Music has doubled their 30 day trial to a 60 day trial. Receive two months of free music streaming and more from Google Play.

There are two different versions of Google Play Music. First is the ‘free’ version and the second is the ‘unlimited’ version. If I understand correctly, this promotion is for a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music Unlimited, which includes many lucrative features.

First, Google play Music allows you to store up to 50,000 of your iTunes songs and listen to them on any device: tablet, smart phone, or computer. You will also receive recommendations based upon your taste.

Secondly, Google unlimited offers you on-demand access to over 30 million songs for your listening pleasure. You can download songs to play when you are not connected to the internet. These songs will play add-free. Enjoy your own curated radio station with unlimited skipping songs. Receive recommendations based upon your specific music tastes as well. here is a quick info-graph on the difference between the free Google Play app you download and a Google Play Music Unlimited subscription:

60 Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

Now, your free trial lasts for 60-days at which point it will cost $9.99 per month to continue your subscription.

I think of Google Play Music Unlimited as sort of a cross between Apple Match ($27.99/yr) and Apple Music ($9.99/m)… I do think this promo is directly in response to Apple Canada’s recent offer for three months free trial of their music subscription service.

I think this offer is ideal for Android phone users as Apple has not yet created an iTunes for Android, yet! This is a great way to get music off the iTunes on your computer and playable on all your devices. With support for up to 50,000 songs plus plenty of access to online (and offline) streaming, you really cannot go wrong with a deal like this from Google Play.

If you have the Google Play Music Unlimited account, then let us know what you think of it! We are always eager to hear user views on tech and software.
