When I visit Seoul, I visit Hyang Music and buy around $300 to $400 worth of CDs. This is so I have physical copies of a lot of the digital releases I buy. Since there aren’t really good options to get these CDs internationally I stock up a lot.

At the same time, I have a tendency to buy CDs that I already own. On occasion at shows, bands that are familiar with Korean Indie will give me CDs too. During my last trip, Startline gave me copies of their EP Across The Night and Townhall Records gave me a copy of The Blocs and Combative Post.

Guess we should give some of these CDs away, huh?

All the CDs that I’ll be giving away are extra copies I’ve had sitting around since then.

But to make this contest a little more fun, it’s going to be a bit more random. Instead of a set number of rules, each time a CD is given away there will be a different requirement that you will have to complete. It could be as easy as taking a picture or recording a short video. Essentially, the more creative you are, the better your chances are to win.

This is how it’s going to work:

1. I’ll post a picture of the CD that will be given away on Instagram (which is posted to Facebook and Twitter)
2. Reply with your entry through a Facebook comment (Facebook is the only place where entries will be accepted)
3. 24 hour time limit and afterwards, the winner will be contacted via Facebook message.

You can only win one CD, so multiple entries will be deleted.

I am aware of how much people want that From The Airport EP.
