Three For Free: Free Music From Shinies, Sleeping At Last, Chromatics

As we wave goodbye to our last November weekend, we start to think about Christmas – and more precisely, how much Christmas is going to cost. Food, drink, gifts, decorations and ill-advised seasonal knitted jumpers will all cost us money. So if you want to pinch the pennies between now and then, here are three free songs.



When Manchester shoegazers Shinies are not busy killing Pat Sharp for the sake of their art, the noise-pop outfit also find the time to give out their songs for free. All you need to do is enter your email on their website.

You can download their Christmas ‘2012’ album from NoiseTrade.
