RCRD LBL is an online record label that offers free downloaded MP3s every single day. They team up with other record labels to gain access to songs before they’re even released. How cool is that?!?

Perhaps the thing I like best about stereogum is that it covers all genres of music. I can get access to an exclusive track to some obscure indie band one day and then hear all about Britney Spears’ new album the next.

The Blogotheque is a French blog that features live performances from some of the greatest indie rock musicians in weird places. One of my favorites is Arcade Fire performing Neon Bible in an elevator.

The idea behind this is that a new band comes in every day of the week and records a live studio session. It then gets posted on the internet as a free download.

The motto at this blog is β€œindie bands, live sessions, daily downloads” and that pretty much sums it up. Hearya covers all of those bands you’ve never heard of but will love one day.
