Despite what may be posted here, I honestly don't advocate exclusively downloading music without giving back to the artists. They put a lot of time and money into their work and I completely understand that. What I do advocate is trying before buying which is sometimes not possible to do thoroughly with 30-second clips or a song or two from an official site. That's the space that I'm trying to fill. I'm sure a lot of you, like me, don't have the money to invest in an artist you haven't thoroughly evaluated first. I love the feeling of holding a brand new CD in my hands, something tangible, complete with album art and liner notes, but more importantly, I love the feeling of supporting an artist whose music I truly admire. I hope anyone reading this feels the same way and thinks about purchasing the music you come to discover here. I can't really do much about it if you don't, but I can try to persuade you anyway.
For all links, change xx to tt.
A few notes about the tags:
Each post is tagged according to the artist or band it contains music by, so if you're looking for someone specific, it's probably easiest to go straight to the tags page and see if they're in the list.
If you find a post tagged with "!dead links" and you really want a song that was in it, I can probably upload it for you again if you ask nicely.
Also, I've tagged most of the posts with category tags to make it easier to browse through older posts, especially if you're looking for a certain one. For convenience, here's the rundown:
Best of 2007 Lists

All I have left to say is that I hope you enjoy the music I post here. If you do, it would be a very kind gesture to leave a short thank you comment. Being greedy and rude isn't very cool. I'd also love it if you added me as a friend - I promise I don't bite and that way, it's easier to stay up-to-date on the latest posts. Now, let's get on to more music!
