This is my second weekly “Site of the Week” instalment.
This weeks site is:
Jamendo is a site that hosts Creative Commons licensed music that is free to download. The interface on the website is very well organized. It is easy to find what you are looking for and to download either one song or a full album. They also very clearly display the information on the Creative Commons license that that song or album is under so you know what the limitations are before you download it.
The songs have their ID3 tags properly set which depending on you library manager can be an important thing.
Jamendo also makes it very straight forward to donate to artist that you choose to, and considering that the artist have decided to put their stuff on-line for free, it’s just good form to donate something to an artist you particularly like.
So go, check it out, enjoy the music, Post music if you are an artist. Join the Jamendo community and discuss music on the various forums. Basically, go and enjoy a great site.
