Free music MP3s to download in individual tracks or albums – some are available for a limited time.

Amazon offers a free Artists on the Rise MP3 sampler album each month. You get a free track from a selection of up-and-coming music makers and the choices vary by month, so if you’re reading this in a future time-warp, check out what’s up for that month. In June, the freebies include my favorites:

Where I Sleep by the super-smooth Emeli Sandé
Is That Clear by the rather rocking Nick Waterhouse

Plus Patrick Watson, Cherri Bomb, Kimbra, John Fullbright, and more. Download just the tracks you like, or the whole free album.

They’re also offering a free Fun. song The Gambler, for those of you who are fans of Fun. after their recent hit single We Are Young (featuring Janelle Monáe). I’m not sure how long this one will remain as a free download, so grab it fast if you want it.

Don’t Mess With Texas: SXSW 2012 New Music is still free to download, with music by bands who performed at the South by Southwest 2012 Music and Film Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.

There’s a ton of Extreme Party Animals free music if you’re planning a party, with faves to rave to ranging from  Johnny B Goode to Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to Ice Ice Baby.  (Yes, we’re in the wayback machine, but oldies are often the besties at a party, so everyone can sing along when on the far side of three margaritas.)

Other free music downloads include:

  • Free MP3s of songs with a wide variety of genres and artists familiar and new
  • Free MP3 albums including options from children’s music to hard rock, plus opera, rap, classical, latin, country, blues, and jazz.  You can sort the free music by selecting the genre to the left at the link.

If you’ve found a great piece of music free or on the cheap – don’t keep it to yourself! Tell us about it in the comments box below.
