It’s been ages since I created mixtapes or playlists. I’ve been listening to entire albums for years. It’s how I most enjoy music. I can really get to know an artist or band and dive into their sound before I see them play live.
So if you’re already through last week’s selection, it’s time to refresh your ears with something new. Here are 10 more free mp3 albums for you to enjoy. If you can, please donate and support the artists or their cause. Thank you!
