Listen/Download counters broken

As some FMAers have noticed, the per-track, per-album, and per-playlist listen and download counts have not been updated for several days.  We are aware of the issue and are trying to correct it.  None of the download or listen data has been lost, but there is a large backlog that our statistics engine is struggling to keep up with.  I will be optimizing the statistics system and returning the counters to normal as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of the week.

Basement Bohemian's "Sun Iced Tea" - WINNER of Audio Cookbook Challenge!

"Sun Tea" by Phillip Chapman-Bell via flickr. CC BY-NC-SA.

We want to extend our most jubilant congratulations to Basement Bohemian! His song, "Sun Iced Tea," not just a recipe for summertime refreshment, has won the Audio Cookbook Challenge!

Thanks to EVERYONE who participated and gave us a signal boost for this challenge - the results were difficult to judge (and, truly, every song was nominated - so the entire album is an "Honorable Mention")! The Free Music Archive is happy to bring opportunities to artists every once in a while, and we will be doing another challenge in fall/winter, so check back in a couple months for the next FMA Challenge. 

Until then, here's "Sun Iced Tea," the winning track of the Audio Cookbook Challenge:

Happy Netlabel Day!

Three years ago, we heard about a little idea called "Netlabel Day," and today is the third annual event! An answer to Record Store Day, but with more free stuff, Netlabel Day is organized by M.I.S.T. Records and, at last count, will be the debut of 104 releases by artists from around the world! Participants include Yes No Wave, blocSonic, Happy Puppy Records, Keshcology, Dubophonic, Soisloscerdos, Vulpiano Records, Spettro, and many many more! 

Check out this list of supporting netlabels and the full list of releases. You can get a lot of Netlabel Day '17 releases right here on FMA, so start digging! We'll get you started with a few tastes below:
