Ten Free MP3 Albums To Download [Sound Sunday]

MP3DownloadLogoNEW   Ten Free MP3 Albums To Download [Sound Sunday]Today, Sound Sunday celebrates its six months existence. When I started, I had my doubts whether there would be enough quality material to supply a weekly feature for so long. However, the sheer flood of legal free albums has been mind-blowing and there is no end in sight.

If any of you have seen the Ron Sexsmith Documentary Love Shines, you got an idea of how the most talented artists of our time get screwed over, just because they are not aggressive enough. Maybe a culture of online publishing can become a lever and restore a much needed balance between corporate interests and fantastic music / the arts. People like you and me are the only ones who can make this happen.

Please support independent music wherever you can. Donate to artists you enjoy, buy their records, and go see their live shows. And if you find something you like, share it with your friends and family.
