Another source for free music!

Well since the start of the new school year I have been very busy with all of my school work and projects etc... hence the lack of posting here. But there is one thing that I have been dealing with lately that I thought I should post about. Students at PSU seem to be being targeted by the RIAA lately and we have had waaaay more than ever getting notices from them. Here is my message to those people: You do not need to download music!!!
There are plenty of places to get free music very easily without actually downloading it! This is great especially since you get the new stuff all the time without having to track it down and try it out first. I had written a post earlier about Pandora and I still love it but it seems to be a bit limited in the content it provides. It is almost like it is trying to hard to provide you music it thinks you will like. So let me introduce you to my new favorite music source. I'll admit that I was a bit leary at first but after about 3 seconds I was convinced to try it. (Thanks Peter!) So far I like it, I'm hearing music that I have never heard before that I like. It has all kinds of cool features but you should really just go check it out for yourself. So go ahead and point google at It's better than serving time for downloading music illegally 🙂

Looking for music?

Lately I have been trying to expand my music library in various different ways. Much what I listen to is rock, but I love it all. I've taken a liking to the newgrass genre recently. It is a modern form of the older bluegrass with slightly different instrumentation. There is something about the banjo, violin, and guitars that gets me going.

It took me a while to finally figure out what bands I liked though. Since the only radio station that I've ever heard bluegrass on is WGBH 86.7 FM out of Boston, I can't listen to it at school simply because I'm too far away. My brother showed me a sweet website,, you tell it a song or a band that you like and it makes an online radio station just for you that plays music that sounds like what you put in it. As a result I've been finding all kinds of new music that I would have never knew of otherwise.
