With the tax deadline finally here (yay?) Google knows some of you could probably use some music to help calm your nerves about having to shell out to Uncle Sam, and they realize that you could probably use a break on that music. They’re hosting a Tax Day sale where 33 albums are offered for just $2.99. Weezer’s “Weezer (Blue Album),” Kanye West’s “My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy,” and Jay Z’s Unreasonable Doubt are all among the featured releases available for these prices. You only have until the end of the day to take advantage of the offer so get started in the Google Play Store.
