At its best, indie rock is raw, daring, and urgent, avoiding corporate rock's dull, PowerPoint-heavy music videos and annual-performance drum solos. Skip the awkwardly rhymed lyrics about synergistic paradigms with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of albums, music downloads, and merchandise from Kill Rock Stars Records. This Groupon is good for any purchase from its extensive mail-order catalog and includes free domestic shipping on all orders except T-shirts and sweatshirts. Today's deal also gets you a free two-song download from Milagres and Thao & Mirah.

Since 1991, Kill Rock Stars Records has earned a dedicated fan following by pioneering DIY distribution and heralding artists such as the Decemberists, Sleater-Kinney, and Elliott Smith into popular consciousness. Its feminist, queer-positive indie ethos contributes to an aural smorgasbord that includes the vinyl LP of Deerhoof’s latest, Deerhoof vs. Evil ($15 with download code), along with hundreds of other tuneful treats. Pedal across Portlandia in a fan-designed Julie Ruin T-shirt ($15) or delve through the back catalogs of KRS’s decades of goodies to restock records stolen by ex-lovers and under-bed gremlins with good taste. While waiting for their shipment to arrive, the headphoned can nod their brains to a free two-track sampler download—one from Milagres and the other off the new album from Thao & Mirah, a duo known for their sweet voices, impeccable song crafting, and ability to charm pythons out of volcanoes ($15 for the LP with digital download, $9.99 for the CD).
