3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Sampler October 6, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Indie music has always been hit or miss for me and I suspect for most people. Some of it is fantastic and about a third of the songs on this compilation appealed to me enough to download them here. Some of the artists are good enough I may hunt them down to give them my money.

But as always with these sorts of things, there are some genres glaring by their absence. That techno and dance are represented at all is a nice element I wasn't initially expecting, though there is no metal of any sort, or anything I'd really call hard rock even though a couple songs are billed that way. I guess I define genres differently.

So the highlights for me:

Suzanna Choffel's Animal reminds me of something Edie Brickell would do if she'd been asked to write a song for an old 1950s sci-fi show.

Barry Blue Berry by Boxtop Jenkins is billed as a children's song, but it's surprisingly entertaining even for an adult. Probably says more about me than the song, though.

Both blues and dance tracks were nice surprises as was Veneno by Bang Data.

Band of Skulls has a great fuzzy guitar and their track seems to blend blues, grunge and alt rock in a way I haven't heard since the Kills (Dead Weather misses most of what makes the Kills great, I feel, but BoS seems to have it).

But my favorites are Heard Your Name by Lucky Tubb, Jorge Grundman's cello-friendly classical track, and the Steel Wheels Rain in the Valley.

At any rate, that's not everything I liked, but I'm already falling into list territory and that's rarely helpful. Take the time to click through the samples and you're likely to find at least a few gems.

I was impressed by the music on this compilation, as out of 67 songs, I only deleted 2, found 13 that I really liked, about 27 that I thought were pretty good and the rest were ok to meh. Of the ones I really liked were Breaking Like the Sun, Yellow Lines, Humans, Two for the Road, Animal (reminded me of the Motels), Adagio, Where the Sounds of Nature Dwell, Fil De Soie, Angel from Montgomery, on Blondes and Detectives, Volvere' and Carpe Diem. There are many different genres represented here and it is well worth downloading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Art at an Unbeatable Price October 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
This is a great free sampler for the person with diverse tastes in music. Several commercially and critically successful artists make an appearance (Ben Kweller, Brodsky Quartet, Gungor), but many of them are "newbies" who deserve to be heard (Sofia Rei, Marie Pierre Arthur, The Buckeye Bluegrass Band). I usually grow weary of these compilations, because they are 90% junk. However, this one has a lot of good, quality music. I'd say about 25 songs are worth listening to more than once. I consider it a great deal. Thanks to whomever made this possible!

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As you can see from the list there is everything from pop, classical to jazz here! I really enjoyed listening to the different styles of music and the sound quality was great! I'm sure that any listener can find at least one song on this list to their liking! Getting it for free was the icing on the cake for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sampler of new music October 17, 2013
By Mike
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Some very good stuff here, though the range is extremely broad. You'll probably only like 1/4 of the songs at most, but there is something for almost everyone except metal heads

5.0 out of 5 stars Great variety of Music October 12, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Pulled this EP down after listening to just two tracks. The variety on it is great! As you see by the listing they have an album from virtually every genre. The sound is clear, the recording volume is constant. The bands are good, the lyrics are great. Only one or two songs have actual profanity in them, even tho the album says "explicit." The only down side is I've pulled down three or four of these songs before in other formats. Definitely worth the grab.

This was a very boring album. Glad it was free because I certainly would have not purchased it or recommended it.
