Free Music Monday


Best GIS result for "Free Music Monday"
 Okay, free music today.  Hmm.  To be honest, I have a lot to choose from, and it's hard to pick.  Okay, well I did find a link from FrostClick leading to a free album sampler with a Valentine's Day theme.  Unfortunately, it's only available via the Amazon MP3 store - which is great, but only if you live in the US.  You're not allowed to buy music if you live outside the US, even if you're "buying" $0 music.  Oh how I love the wonderful world of licensing (speaking of which, I'm really surprised that FrostClick even linked to Amazon at all - they usually stick with Creative Commons).

Where was I?  Oh yes.  That sampler was actually from Bloodshot Records, so I decided to just go straight to their website to see if the sampler would be there.  If it's there, I sure can't find it, but they DO have a Giveaways page with a handful of free MP3s.  The genre seems to be primarily folky roots type of music, and I liked the tracks that I clicked on at random.

Why not give it a shot on this rainy Monday?

In other news...

I mentioned on my Twitter feed this weekend that I'm working on something fun for episode 20 of Alternative Airwaves. I should clarify that by "I'm working on something" I really meant "I haven't really started yet, but I have lots of time this week to get it done in one night of hard work". It's nothing major but I thought I'd do something cool for a "landmark episode".
