Bad Economy = Music On The Cheap

In my never ending search for free, legal music, I came across some real gems this morning. Songs for the discerning music fan who is looking for some new music on the cheap.

Amazon has a large number of mp3s for free, available on their site. All it takes is a quick download of their mp3 client, available here, and a little patience in wading through numerous pages of all types of music.

To save you a little time, I located three very nice samplers that may entertain you.

Badman Records: Badman, Has It Really Been 10 Years?

This sampler contains the bands: Bell, My Morning Jacket, and my recommendations Mark Kozelek, Hayden, Weinland and Laterna.

Yep Roc Records: This Is How I Roc

This sampler contains the bands: Reverend Horton Heat, Bell X1, and my recommendations Robyn Hitchcock, The Baseball Project, The Apples In Stereo and Nick Lowe.

Deep Elm Records: Bonfire Of Trust Sampler 8

This sampler contains the bands: Ride Your Bike, Free Diamonds, and my recommendation Track A Tiger.

Click on the album covers to locate the FREE mp3s on Don't forget to download their client first (see above link). The mp3s are encoded at 256 kbps.
