Attention Muruch Android App Users!

Do you use Muruch’s Android App? If so, please comment here, email or tweet @muruchblog or it may be deleted.

It was a battle to get the app on Google’s Play store since they still had us unjustly blacklisted from their own admitted error and now they’re demanding payment to keep it on the store. I’m inexplicably still a loyal Android user myself, but the itunes app has been far more popular than its Android counterpart.

We’ll only keep the Android app if enough readers are enjoying it. So please let me know if you do.

Introducing Darlingside…

I’m a little in love with Boston quartet Darlingside. Beautiful four-part harmony and folk instrumentation plus their name is a literary homage (“Kill Your Darlings”/darlingcide). Darlingside’s new album, Birds Say,¬†will be released on September 18th. You can watch a live performance of their lovely ballad “God of Loss” below.
