There's a lot of exotic*
, and strangely catchy°
music out there on the net. Through Weirdo Music
and Record Brother, I've begun to touch the tip...
And while there's a fairly proscribed etiquette regarding the sharity sites (limited time for downloads, out-of-print only, desisting when asked), I find that Free Albums
and Strange Reaction
have put me off of buying new RIAA albums more than Napster or Kazaa ever did.
(Well, there is Regnyouth
, but the downloading is such a pain in the ass for most of it that I only ever really bother with things that I own on a format that I can't convert like cassette, or that I listen to once and delete, like Interpol).
But where do you go for weirdo music? Anything you've found in digging through these sites that's struck your fancy?
(And if you have sharities to, well, share: You Send It
are pretty much the gold standard.)
