The Iceland-based Bedroom Community is a record label which has released some of the finest and most interesting records of the past 12 months and indeed the past few years. Among their ranks are the likes of Ben Frost, Nico Muhly, Daníel Bjarnason and Valgeir Sigurðsson. Want to hear what they're all about musically? Look no further. Think of this gift as a late Christmas present, if you like. From the auntie and uncle who only pop round between Boxing Day and New Year's Eve. We've got a 12-track sampler to download entirely for free. Not so bad, eh?

Staying festive and relatively free, each year Bedroom Community do a Yule compilation, and this year it's free for any purchases made in their store in December. As you know, today is December 30 and tomorrow the last day of the year, so you haven't got much time. Still, you can find out more here.
