Free Music From Amazon

Not actually my i-Pod

The Amazon MP3 Store now offers "Free Downloads from Artists on the Rise".

From their website:

Artists on the Rise

Each month, we'll shine the spotlight on new artists we think you'll love and give you a free track from each. If you like what you hear, you can pick up each artist's latest release next month for a great price.

Amazon also provides mini-reviews of the artists they select, telling you why they were selected and comparing them to a few other artists.  For example:

Natalia Kills
Why We Like It: Natalia Kills marries heavy dance floor-friendly beats with anthemic melodies that caught our ears on first listen. These well-produced pop jams wouldn’t feel out of place on the radio, in a club, blasting out of car speakers, or at a sweet summer BBQ.
Recommended if you like: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Robyn

A pretty nice feature if you ask me!

The selections span a wide variety of genres, so you'll almost certainly discover some you like, some you don't like, and some you would never even consider purchasing. But they are free - so you have nothing to lose but a minute or two of your time.

I've found some pretty catchy tunes.  You might, too.
