I try to do an eMusic roundup every four months, but I forgot and haven’t done one since May. Woops. If you are new to eMusic, you should know four things: A) you can sign up, get loads of free MP3s through their no-strings free trial offer (and immediately quit should you choose), and B) eMusic is THE place to go for independent artists on the Interweb, and C) they don’t have wonky file formats like an iTunes..these are MP3s, period. Also, D) I get a small kickback should you go through the links below, so keep that in mind when joining and hook a brother up.
Here are some artist’s new/reissued records on eMusic that Aquarium Drunkard fully endorses, some of which will be featured on our Best of 2006 list. Go back to May for the old list, and four months prior for an even older list.

Robert Pollard +++ Sunset Rubdown +++ Destroyer +++ The Hold Steady +++ Bobby Bare Jr. +++ The Lemonheads +++ Akron/Family +++ Robyn Hitchcock & The Venus 3 +++ Portastatic +++ Josh Ritter +++ The Handsome Family +++ Howe Gelb +++ Micah P Hinson +++ Townes Van Zandt (reissues) +++ John Coltrane (reissues) +++ Grayson Capps +++ Bloodshot Records Compilation +++ Horse Feathers +++ Damien Jurado +++ Yo La Tengo +++ Ben Kweller +++ Ratatat +++ Pernice Brothers +++ Drive-by Truckers +++ etc etc
