Sweet Freebie: 25 Free MP3 Downloads from eMusic

So, you can download 25 indie tracks (or rap, classical, blues, whatever) from eMusic right now for free.  They’re doing a 14-day free trial that lets you keep the music you download, whether you subscribe or not, with no obligation, and no DRM.  Nice.  You can check out the offer here.

I recently browsed emusic.com and I picked out a bunch tracks by indie and alternative bands:

  1. Alkaline Trio
  2. Arcade Fire 
  3. Badly Drawn Boy
  4. Beirut 
  5. Belle and Sebastian 
  6. Ben Kweller 
  7. Bloc Party 
  8. Brand New
  9. Dashboard Confessional 
  10. Elliott Smith 
  11. Jens Lekman 
  12. Modest Mouse 
  13. Of Montreal 
  14. Plain White T’s 
  15. Spoon 
  16. Stereolab 
  17. Sufjan Stevens 
  18. The Decemberists

  20. The New Pornographers 
  21. The Pixies
  22. The White Stripes 
  23. Thom Yorke 
  24. Voxtrot
  25. Yo La Tengo

Some of these are more mainstream indie than others, but whatever — I’m not ashamed.  🙂  If you do the trial and download some tracks from e music, share your picks with the rest of us in the comments below — it’s fun to know what everyone else is listening to..!

    If you dig Beirut & Sufjan, you’ll prolly like Midlake too.

    Des – Thanks! I’m actually a huge Sufjan fan; I’ll have to check Midlake out asap, as well as Beirut, which I’m only just getting into…
