Our last ‘eMusic reccs’ update was back in May. Lots of new stuff has been added, but I’m finding plenty of obscure, older stuff too. It’s no mystery eMusic is Aquarium Drunkard’s preferred digital distribution outfit, and if you sign up via our link, you will be supporting the blog, as well as wrangling your free MP3s. It’s what they call ‘a “win-win situation” I believe. Yeah.

You can sign up here for 25 free MP3s and cancel immediately if you don’t like the service. We dig it…you probably will too.

Here are some artists (new and old) available via eMusic that A.D. fully endorses: Panda Bear, Animal Collective, Travel by Sea, Sonic Youth, Grizzly Bear, Devandra Banhart, Comets on Fire, Howlin’ Rain, Elliott Smith, Cat Power, Sufjan Stevens, Townes Van Zandt, Ryan Adams, The Black Keys, Will Oldham, Palace, Slint, PJ Harvey, The Star Room Boys, Pavement, Belle & Sebastian, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, 16 Horsepower, etc. I could go on for awhile….

I would also recommend digging deeper as they have all sorts of interesting world stuff, jazz, etc, etc.

+ Use this link to explore eMusic’s 25 Free MP3 offer.
+ Visit The Hype Machine and sample MP3s from the above listed eMusic artists.

  4. I’m a big emusic fan- I’ve used them to get all The National records, and this month I think I’ll use some downloads on Howlin Rain.

  5. There’s still a lot of mainstream artists that aren’t available, but the depth of the selections is amazing and the reason I keep my subscription going.
