You are here

Free (legal) music on the net?

Post links to music that is
a) freely listenable
b) good (in your opinion)
c) near cd-quality

preferrably more than just a few samples. Give some idea about what sort of music it is (not everybody likes black metal, for instance :))
If you have photographed them and have pics on the net, provide a link to the pictures.

Here's a few of my favorites:
- The BellRays - Funky rock (pics - not all of them mine)
- Husky Resque - Album: Country Falls - chillout pop

That's interesting. It worked yesterday, and I checked the link (linked from Wikipedia, for instance). Looks like somebody forogot to pay the bill :)

http://www.thebellrays.com works again. There's a full album of (near) CD-quality music.

You can't download everything, but if you're happy with listening online have a look at http://www.last.fm There's also a plugin for iTunes/WindowsMediaPlayer that you can download, and it tracks what you listen to (as long as your mp3's are tagged properly) and recommends stuff based on the "Rule of Crowds".
