Check it out! purevolume™ is a place for new and established musicians and bands to share music with the world. This is what I loved about MP3.com before it changed hands and turned into the crapfest it is now.
I found the site while looking for more from The Decemberists (who categorize themselves as indie/world/other) as I have been enjoying several of their songs gleaned from various mp3-blogs. Some allow downloads, others offer samples for listening. I appreciate the categories and the browsing capabilities... I imagine I will be surfing around purevolume frequently in weeks ahead.
