Update: Judging from comments, it looks like these songs aren't available in many countries. They're downloadable for us, but your mileage may vary.

Over the course of ten years, Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia fame has produced quite a bit of music. Now his record label, Size Records, is working with Google to give away 150 songs entirely for free. That's right - free. That's roughly a full workday of non-stop electronic music.

Spotify users are currently receiving an update to version 0.7.8 that pretties up the app's playlist experience. Now instead of merely display song text, the software will serve up album art. Here we have a before and after image for your convenience.

Okay, so that camera voice command Google pointed out the other day wasn't terribly useful, but the new music command is pretty cool. Just pull up voice search in whatever way you prefer, and tell your device to "play some music." That's it – the tunes will flow.

Good news, everyone! Well, everyone in four very specific European countries, anyway. After stretching the Movies section of the Play Store today, Google is also spreading Play Music to Greece, Norway, Slovakia, and Sweden. Users in these countries should now be able to purchase songs and albums starting today.

Even better, all four new territories can access the all-you-can-eat All Access music subscription service. That's generally been the way it works - currently all twenty-five countries supported by Google Play Music also have access to All Access.

Has it really been two years already? You're getting to be such a grown up app marketplace, Google Play. Google is offering some modest sales to celebrate two years of Google Play (also two years since the Android Market was smothered in its sleep). You'll find an assortment of apps, music, books, and movies, but don't expect amazing deals.

Most of the apps are offering discounts on in-app purchases. Although, you can play as a bugdroid in Badlands now, which it worthy of celebration all by itself.

Mogees has surpassed its £50,000 Kickstarter funding goal with 13 days to go. Why should you care? Listen up. No seriously, click on the video below, and listen up. Written words don't quite do this concept justice.

That's right, Mogees takes any inanimate object and turns it into a musical instrument. The tiny accessory does this by translating vibrations into music notes that pump through your phone's speakers. The Mogees itself is a small sensor that plugs into your Android device, and it comes with a companion app that takes care of the magical bits without any talent on your part.

Users of the Subsonic music streaming service are probably familiar with DSub, which was already highly praised. Well, it just learned a new tricks. Top billing for this update goes to Chromecast support, which lets you pipe online and local music your nearest HDMI port. That's not all DSub has in store, though.

It turns out Spotify Connect has a very useful feature that the company hasn't done much to make immediately obvious. The service, which lets you stream music to WiFi-connected speakers from your smartphone or tablet, also lets you pump music to other Android devices. The devices don't even have to be on the same network, for that matter. You can connect from an LTE network, as you can see in the screenshots below.
