This week I subscribed to a great free music site: lala. You can listen to any song or album for free once, so it's a great way to check out new music. They also give you 50 free song credits when you join, so you can add 50 songs to your account that you can play as much as you want. You can also, of course, buy songs. Here are some of my favorite new tracks:
Young Adult Friction by The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
Moth's Wings by Passion Pit
Stillness is the Move by Dirty Projectors
Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear (weird--I heard this via lala on Pitchfork.com, but it's not showing up when I log into lala, so here it is on myspace.)
You can also play full albums for free on Pitchfork's album reviews page. Looking forward to listening to the new Deerhunter and Jason Lytle (Grandaddy) albums.
Happy new music finding!
