    Obtained: One new iPod Nano
    Obliged: To take a trip to NYC tomorrow
    Inevitable: Several hours on a plane, in airports and a hotel room
    Inconvenient: As a fogey of the oldish sort, I have mostly cds, with a very minimal mp3 library

    The brief: I need to pick up a 4 day supply of new (to me at least) music to fill some enforced leisure. I am scouring the Weekly Listening Thread, Whitechapel Radio, and Warren's Jukeboxes Ancient and Modern...

    But I know many of you either make music or are closely associated with people who do. I will spend money on your mp3s if they are purchasable online. Or if they are free, I will happily tip your website as I download them tonight, if a tip button presents itself.

    I have just until about Midnight, Pacific Time, to fill up my waffer-like sound cracker.

    I like many kinds of music; electronic, lyrical, Irish-punk, trip-hop, the weird... but really I'll give almost anything a try.

    If you really like it, and can point me to a page (I'd prefer buying from anyplace other than iTunes, where possible, but I will bite the apple if I must) where I can get it, I will be much obliged to you for the goddam kindness.

    My boyfriend has an EP up on bandcamp here. There's a bonus track for downloading it, and you can get it for free (w/ the option to pay what you want).
    I have a hard time describing his music... it's like it started out wanting to be industrial but kept getting lost along the way. Or something.

    This place is great for exactly what you're doing. I've discovered a lot of music and books and comics and on and on... just from showing up here everyday. Good luck filling up your Nano!

    You can download my free Ep's here


    Listen to the album for free on Last FM

    and then if you'd like to buy it it's available on iTunes and Amazon (and elsewhere).

    and here's the Myspace with links to everything should you wish to find out more.

    I hope you enjoy what you hear.

    Edit out of an obligation to point out our Musicians, Bands, Singers, Noisemakers thread.

    Here's a bunch of Älymystö tunes available for download. I'd recommend heading straight for Atomgrad, which is up for download in its entirety. (It's available on a couple of web stores [and not just iTMS, either] as well, so if you want to toss some coin our way, you know. Not required, obviously.)

    If you use firefox go download DownloadHelper and go to the 8tracks thread. It will allow you to download streaming mp3s.

    Also I would download the latest shows that come out of radio station WMBR as they provide some amazing shows. Suggestions: The Intercontinental and Subject To Change

    Älymystö! I had forgotten - I heard some of this a while back and meant to go get it!

    The Face of Human Error - I just tasted a couple of your tracks, and that is some good sounds! Thanks for the thread reference as well.

    Brittanica, I'll be downloading the EP later tonight - thanks for the link!

    And oldhat, I'll definately check out the WMBR shows.

    Thanks all! More please!
  1.  (7212.7) for my scratchings, all free at the moment, and I'm sure Kernowdrunk won't mind me pimping Kemper Norton also.

    A couple of years ago, me and some friends formed a short lived band. We only wrote and recorded 2 songs, both of which are up on the myspace.

    If you (or anyone else) is interested, I can send them to your email, or post a link here. I'd just have to dig up the actual cd from storage.

    Thanks, Whitechaplains!

    I obtained all of your music, and left monies. Where they were available, I bought albums from Amazon.

    Except for you, Ryan Catcher - as your myspace page allows neither download nor donation - but I will listen to your two tracks on the wifi at my hotel tomorrow.

    JonCarpenter - I loaded up on both you and Kemper Norton, thanks much! You did not leave a donation link, so I have all of your soundmakings for free. You should put up a paypal donation button.

    I will let you all know what I liked when I've listened!

    for the news paper i write for, The Grapevine, offers free music on its front page

    Here is one by a guy called Snorri Helgason, who is a member of local Band Sprengjuhöllinn. Enjoy

    its sort of a big file, but I hosted a radio programme recently that's free online here. It's two hours long but packed full of good musics.

    Missed the deadline, but we have an EP for free download at , titled "I, Ape-Man." Fast-paced, garage punk, with some synth flare. But that's our old stuff. You can download MP3s or buy the CD from of our full length, sci-fi rock epic album ROCKTRONIC, also available on Itunes: just type "Americans UK" into the Itunes search field!

    Rock! Hope you check us out when you get back from NYC! We just played last Thursday in Brooklyn.
