The Free Music Archive is a on-line database of pre-cleared music available for legal download and distribution. The project is directed by WFMU radio station in Jersey City, New Jersey – one of the foremost independent radio stations in the United States. Further curators and contributors include other stateside radio stations such as KEXP, dublab, KBOO, ISSUE Project Room, and CASH Music. The project is in its infancy and growing everyday but there is already enough content to warrant regular visits and contributons.
Here are some of the few treasures I uncovered on one recent stroll through the archive. The rest I’ll let you discover by yourself. Happy digging!
