The Android Police staff must not be very musically eclectic, because none of us had ever heard of Bleachers before we spotted another free album on the Play Store. But don't let our lack of broad influences keep you from getting some free music: Terrible Thrills Vol. 2 is now up for grabs. Just add it to your Google account and you'll be able to stream or download it to your Android devices for free, gratis, and nothing. As with most of these free albums, it's a bit of a coin toss as to whether you can download it for free outside the US.
Bleachers is a relatively new band started by Jack Antonoff, notably of pop-rock group Fun. This indie pop group has only released two albums so far, and Terrible Thrills Vol. 2 is the second (there is no volume one). Update: turns out there is a volume one, from another band. See what I mean about lacking eclectic tastes? It's basically a re-release of that first album, Strange Desire, remixed with other popular artists like Sia, Natalie Maines, and Carly Rae Jepson. That being the case, this is probably the most "mainstream" (if you'll forgive me for using the term) album that Google has given away to date.
Terrible Thrills Vol. 2 includes 11 songs, and they're only available on the album itself, so if you're a fan of the band or any of the collaborating acts you should definitely check it out.
