Legitimate Free Music

A couple of days ago I did something that I had been meaning to do for a while.

I frequent a music news website called Pitchfork. They have a section that is titled "Free Downloads." The free downloads consist of songs in the mp3 format by bands you've never heard of. Monday night I downloaded about seventeen of the songs and burned them to a CD. I've been playing the CD exclusively on the best for the last two days. About half the songs are really good and four are standouts. All the songs are listenable.

The best song so far has been by a band called the Singles.

This has been a nice experiment and I think I'll keep doing this every few weeks or so.
