The new musical generosity

The music industry mostly get’s criticized for being caught in the last century – and often they are – but some players have really brought great value to all us music fans.

Apart from the constant innovations from iTunes and great brand utility initiates like Nokia’s Music Recommenders (
www.musicrecommenders.com) there are publishers that have understood that one free tune can lead to new fans and buyers more effectively than any other marketing ploy.
One splendid and legal generous site is http://betterpropaganda.com/ which is filled with great free tracks (may I recommend a free download from the likes of Albert HAmmond Jr., Arcade Fire, Ratatat, HOT HOT HOT, Cat Power, Klaxons, New Young Pony Club, Soulwax, MSTRKRFT, Man Man, Peter, Bjorn and John, Van She, The Softlightes, Wolf Parade)

Also recommendable is:
The free and very influential music blog (which you probably already know):
If you ever need to write a lyric (or a rhyme full line of strategy for that matter): http://www.rhymezone.com/
Or have to find a specific lyric: http://www.azlyrics.com/
