Here's an excellent source of free indie rock, folk and country.
Daytrotter coaxes bands and solo artists into the studio to perform live, and captures it all in glorious mp3. Many notables have performed for Daytrotter, as diverse as Dinosaur Jr., the Drive-By Truckers and Kris Kristofferson. Lots of up-and-coming artists are doing sessions for Daytrotter too, including Joe Pug and We Were Promised Jetpacks (pictured above). Each session is embellished by a great rambling essay and a brilliant cartoon portrait.
All you have to do to get this stuff is register (it's free) and you'll receive regular update via email. With a login and password, you can then download session for free to your heart's content. And if you're after seriously good sound quality, you can pay a little for the upgrade.
Well worth it!
