Giveaway: Free 1-Year Membership to Daytrotter!

Categorized Under: Free stuff, Music, contests No Commented

by Marisa Ruiz (@MarisaVictoria)

After a temporary hiatus, I’m stoked to say I’m back in bloggin’ action! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to jump straight into a giveaway for the truest of music lovers. Broke Hipster Music Blog has partnered with the rad folks over at Daytrotter to hook up five lucky readers with a free one-year membership to their ever-awesome and ever-growing archive of stripped down music sessions.

For those new to the audio paradise that is Daytrotter, the site features exclusive live sessions of more than 5,000 bands. The number of featured artists grows every week, as Mr. Daytrotter (Sean Moeller) is well-regarded for discovering the industry’s next up-and-comers. While this means you have a front-row seat to new music, it also means there is a treasure trove of gems ready to be found from your now favorite bands, playing their future hit songs before they blew up. (Apologies if the mix of past, present and future tenses there reminds you of a trip in Marty McFly’s DeLorean.)

I just listened to The Neighbourhood singing “Sweater Weather” in 2012 and I swear you can hear an innocence in Jesse Rutherford’s vocal that has since been replaced with lots of naughtiness (not that I’m complaining!) How about a session from Bon Iver in 2008 that sounds like Justin Vernon is strumming his guitar while sitting in your living room? Done. Into Alabama Shakes or George Ezra? How about Vampire Weekend, Ra Ra Riot, Spoon, Bastille, Metric or Bush? They’re all on there – along with a few thousand more. From Hip-Hop to Dance jams and Folk. Daytrotter has your favorite genre covered.

Also, despite the vast catalogue of music the site offers, the clever organization of the homepage allows you to very easily sort through hand-picked collections of interest. Beyond new and top sessions, you can also check out the best 100 sessions from 2014; or browse through categories like “Legends” and “Blowin’ Up”. If you like to keep tabs on which bands could be the next big thing, you’ll love “Mr. Daytrotter’s Picks” (shout out to On an On, Chet Faker, ScHoolBoy Q, Elle King and PAPA; all of which would make a list of my picks as well!)

If you’re already a Daytrotter enthusiast, you might recall the site used to be for members only. That was indeed the case up until February of this year. Since then, half the content of every session in the archive has been made available for free public streaming. In other words, anyone can listen to one or two songs from any session; but members enjoy the benefit of getting to both stream – and download! – the entire session. Members also enjoy all the site’s content with no ads. That’s a pretty sweet value for just $2.99/month or $32/year – but as you know, we’re ready to give out five free memberships!

Two Ways to Win!

1) Twitter

To enter via Twitter, simply tweet “Hey @brokehipster! I’d love the gift of @daytrotter because…” and finish the sentence with why you’d really enjoy this free membership! Maybe it’s because you’re all about finding new music; or because you’d really like to download that Wilco session. Two (2) winners will be selected by Broke Hipster Music Blog via this method.

- OR -

2) Email Entry

If you prefer the odds of a good old-fashioned random lottery, you can enter your email address into the drawing on Daytrotter’s contest entry page. Three (3) winners will be selected by Daytrotter via this method.

Contest ends on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 at 5 PM CST. Twitter winners will be notified via Twitter. Email entry winners will be notified via email by Daytrotter.

Cheers and Happy Listening,
