I recently got a new iPod and the last few months I’ve been busy filling it up. One of my favorite sites for free (and legal) mp3 downloads is BetterPropaganda.com. I’ve found a surprisingly large number of songs on this site that I love. It certainly doesn’t have everything, but they have a lot of great tracks. Here are 13 songs I’ve downloaded from the site and highly recommend:
- Misery is a Butterfly by Blonde Redhead
- Blood Bank by Bon Iver
- He War by Cat Power, also check out “The Greatest” which is also at the same link
- Tomorrow by Ladytron, I like the Great Northern Remix
- Star Witness by Neko Case
- My Rights Versus Yours by The New Pornographers
- Such Great Heights by The Postal Service
- Crazed by Rondo Brothers
- For You by Sharon Van Etten
- The Underdog by Spoon, you might also like “I Turn My Camera On” which was used in a car commercial a few years back.
- The Engine Driver by The Decemberists
- GFC by Albert Hammond Jr.
- My Girls by Animal Collective
This really just scratches the surface of the site. There are lots of other great bands… and of course lots of stuff you won’t like, but who cares? You can listen to it all for free and download whatever songs you like. By the way, here is a video of Crazed by Rondo Brothers:
