Seems like RIAA finally won the fight; AllOfMp3 has shut down.
… but there is a new site called Mp3Sparks up and running. Mp3Sparks looks like a clone of AllOfMp3 and is owned by the same company. They claim to accept credit cards so it is possible to actually buy from them. That was a problem AllOfMp3 had at the end since none of the credit card ompanies wanted to do business with them.
I just found out about Soundpedia. A free music service based in Singapore that is open for us non Americans.
I haven’t figured out how to make it mix by itself, but it took less than a minute to get some nice music in my ears.
Since Pandora closed the doors for us Europeans I have re-found BBC Music. There is a hole lot of free music to listen at.
If you know some Swedish you can go to Sveriges Radio they make most of their shows available online for free. I’m into reggae an listen mostly to P3 Rytm
If you know of more free music sites please let me know.
Today I got an email from pandora telling me that I can’t use their service due to licensing issues.
I think the record industry is doing a huge mistake here. Pandora has influenced me into buying records the last year more than anything else.
