Maybe I've just been living under a rock for some time now, but my friend linked me to this site the other day, and I think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. It compiles links to free, legitimate downloads that bands have put up on their own sites or wherever. Just click 'read full post' and there should be a download button on the page (you might have to right click to save). www.hypem.com/
Well, I was looking for the last.fm thread to mention this site. Now that I have my laptop back up I am reaffirming my love for last.fm, the scrobble feature is fantastic, and Hype Machine will scrobble to last.fm. Yay for cool companies working together!
