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 musicians and the choices vary, so if you’re reading this in a future time-warp check out the latest freebies at this link. In October, the free music includes:

  • Lindi Ortega’s great country sound on Cigarettes & Truckstops
  • Nathan Pacheco with the always heartstring-twanging classic Nessun Dorma
  • Let her Go by Passenger – so romantic!
  • The very mellow and super-sultry Poinciana by Elizabeth Shepherd
  • Plus Family Band, Jillette Johnson, Black Prairie and more, twelve tracks in all. Download just the tracks you like, or the whole free album.

Blondie fans might find their heart of glass melted by three free songs by Blondie:

I also found this free Green Hill Jazz Sampler of smooth jazz, recently released with very good reviews. Individual tracks on the album by Beegie Adair & Friends cost 99 cents individually, but if you download the entire album it’s currently free – I downloaded it!

The free Relaxation & Meditation album has 60 minutes of chill-out sounds from Native American and Andean flute pieces to “monsoon lullabies” and some really dreamy Tibetan music.

It’s also worth checking out the 100 albums for $5 deal this month that includes classic albums by Bruce Springsteen, The Fray, Kenny Rogers, George Michael, the Footloose soundtrack, and more.

The MP3 single Don’t Dig Here by Crosby and Nash (no Stills) is still free to download and sounds mighty fine.

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

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.
