Every year the folks at online music retailer Bleep pick their favourite 100 tracks in “independent, alternative and electronic music”, and sell them in a handsome – and generously discounted – bundle.
This year’s 100 – amounting to nine hours of music – is available in 320kbps mp3 format or, for the very first time, lossless FLAC format, and, even better, it’s presented in a beautiful limited edition gift package, comprising a clear foil embossed 90gsm card wallet and A3 poster designed by GiveUpArt.
You can find more information on the compilation here. The full list of tracks hasn’t been announced as yet, but they’re revealing 10 each day in the lead-up to the official release date, December 25, so we do already know that the likes of Shackleton, Burial, Tropic of Cancer, Bok Bok, Brian Eno, Ducktails, John Maus, Mark Ernestus and Objekt feature.
We’ve got three Bleep 100 gift sets to give away. If you’d like to win one, simply email your name and ‘bleep 100’ to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our winner will be notified on or before January 7, 2012.
