“Fma” (Used 16 times)
netlabelday on 06/16/2016 at 01:00PM
Today is June 15, I know, but yesterday we released two new compilations with independent music, gathering 18 netlabels from all over the world in one album. That's something that the major labels can't do because "it's not profitable". Come on, let's do this for the art!
Here on FMA you can find -lovely- songs by Hiroshima Dandys, Csum, Charles White, Élansson, Unchained Zebra and more, and you can download all this right now for free (after all it's Free Music Archive, of course you can). But that's not all.
As you may know, Netlabel Day was created in Chile by M.I.S.T. Records, so we felt that we should do something for the Chilean music as well. After all, it's our country and beyond all the corruption stories and the social chaos that we have right now (we aren't having good times here, to be honest), our mission is support the Chilean culture as well, so we decided to release a compilation with Chilean music in Sazoot, a Chilean digital music store, completely free for everyone. They're our friends, so we really recommend you to visit their enormous catalog too.
There's one month left for the big day, so be prepared... A lot of new music is coming, and "it's not just free music; it's good music".

I didn't know exactly how to let you know about this, but yes... We're making a new promo compilation for FMA with music from the participating labels and it will be amazing. As you may know, this isn't the first time that we do something like this, because last year we made a lovely compilation (that you can download right here).
I can't tell you yet when it will be released, but... June. That's all you have to know by now.
Cheers, everyone. Remember that Netlabel Day 2016 is happening once again on July 14, but every day can be Netlabel Day. Support them and show your love to them!

Right now, I am absolutely stumped at what to write in explanation of uploading my label’s entire music catalogue to the Free Music Archive. I’ve sat here for at least 20 minutes in a Minneapolis coffee shop, damn bewildered at where to start, or even the intonation to take with this piece.
When I booked my first tour with The Blend, back in 2005, I bought as many blank CDs as possible to mail out to each city we planned to hit. Each CD had a flier stapled to its case, and was distributed by a coffee shop or friend willing to prop them up in a visible spot, or hand out. With that maneuver, we were able to pull a fan-base that had never seen us before, but had heard our sound. The simplicity of giving our music out for free, created an invaluable ripple effect across the country. Soon, as myspace, facebook and other social media sites arose to prominence, we were able to stream our music to anyone that happened to cross our site. Now, I know how way, way, way back this is. I mean, I just referenced myspace. Not the Justin-Timberlake-owned-newly-revamped myspace, but the original myspace with the user experience of a Neanderthal, and fonts worse than “Papyrus” or “Impact”.
Over the past decade, The Blend, and several other bands I’ve managed, have produced amazing music and then moved on to other projects. However, in an effort to preserve the integrity of these projects (or albums), I’ve sought to keep as much of the music alive online, as possible.

Netlabel Day is going so nice. We can't be happier right now for all your help and love, and we're pretty sure that you'll keep supporting us because there are lots of free independent music for you: We have more than 80 participating labels and 15 independent artists that will be releasing free music for everyone on July 14. Imagine that!

Just posted Radio BSOTS episode #124 online, which features nothing but tunes from the FMA. Long overdue.
If you care to download, just head to the show notes. You'll find one of the featured songs below...
