My friend Naomi made a comment that she likes free music and it reminded me about all the places I get free, legal downloads online so I figured I’d share more with you. First, Sage Francis’Strange Famous Records website where they have many rotating free samplers, albums, etc. so check the MP3 Downloads section often. Currently Buddy Peace “Holy Chome” is available.
If you’re looking for interesting stuff to listen to, the Daptone Jukebox is always available. Through the Jukebox I found a pretty sweet blog, Voodoo Funk, which I’m obsessing over currently. Frank, from Voodoo Funk recently played with The Budos Band at Union Pool in Brooklyn. I have a few friends who may have gone to that show and I’m quite jealous if they went.
The archives of the Greasy Kids Stuff radio show are available online and though it’s a kids show, it’s a really good kids show that everyone can enjoy. The ever-awesome Little Boots has a free mixtape download on her site right now. One of my favorite magazines, Filter has a lot of media available here.
EDIT: Late addition, I found DatPiff buried in my links. If you’re into rap/hip-hop mix tapes, this looks like a pretty good place to start. Big ups to KSDB station director Loren Seeger for originally posting this link on Facebook. Hope you’re enjoying NYC, girl.
