Free Music Archives (FMA) is an amazing website that hosts hundred thousands mp3 files from any musical genre you can imagine, that are allowed for a free download under Creative Commonce License.
It is the creation of the fabulous people of WFMU radio (aka – the best radio station in the world), and it’s a collaboration with other radio stations that contributes to the archive.
I strongly recommend all of you musicians out there to register to the website, enjoy the music available and contribute some free tracks to the archive. You get a wonderful exposure to your music and help the archive to evolve.
This week’s mixtape is assembled only from tracks I found there, some of them are live radio sessions, some are rarities you can find only through music experts like the ones in WFMU. Enjoy.
