Music Really Can Be Free
See this Free Music List from gHacks for example. A great list of sites offering free downloadable or streaming music.
Another great place to check are band websites. You'll often find at least streaming versions of a couple of your favorite songs and sometimes, especially with indie bands, downloadable mp3s. Last week I stumbled on Steadman, a Brit Pop-Rock band that I quite like. And guess what? Due to lack of airplay, this truly talented band decided to put their entire catalog online in mp3 format! You can download every song from every album.
One of my favorite free music haunts is Epitonic. Epitonic is a music guide for indie music lovers. They've got rock, folk, punk, electronic, any genre that suits your fancy. Every mp3 is free and legal to download.
Another great place to look for free music and new bands is believe it or not, MySpace. In fact, my personal opinion is that the only reason anybody should ever visit MySpace is for the music. Ordinarily a "soo high school" blogging and social network, MySpace is nevertheless a great place to check out up and coming bands and sample their music. A band I found over there that I'm really liking lately is Vertigo. Visit their MySpace, stream their music, and download a couple of songs if you want.
