Need music? Check out download.com’s music download section. The layout is neat. Everything is so straight-forward. You have the sidebar with the listing of the genres to check out. The main section of the page contains the day’s headlines. It could be the latest music from particular artists. There is also a section for new releases.
Living in stereo is one of their blogs. It is not updated very regularly but you could see some reviews. Maybe you could try helping them out in that section (if you would like to, maybe try sending an email to them about it).
If you want to see the latest releases, you could check out the “new releases section.” You could see the latest music releases are sorted by date, the statistics, the ratings. If it has not been rated yet, you could be the first one to do that. There are a number of Indie Rock artists on that section. You would see from the listing whether or not a free download of the song is available or not. If you see CNet’s green download button, just click it.
You could try joining CNet to become a member of their music download section. The perks of joining them includes the following:
- a watchlist of your favorite artists
- a chance to submit your opinions
- newsletters from the site
- participation in the discussions of the community
- a profile page where you could manage all of these things
Note that you have to be at least 13 years of age to join the community. This is in compliance to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. They are quite conscious of the regulation and that is something quite good.
Hopefully you will find music you like. Having a personal collection of music on the computer makes it a little bit more personal. And if you join their community, it makes it interactive for you as well.
