Twenty One From Twenty Thirteen

Tweny One From Twenty Thirteen

The more I thought about this post, the more I dreaded writing it. The more I dreaded writing it, the more I stayed away from it. For me the problem and its continued distraction was that I could not have possibly listened to everything. Towards the end of December, I discovered two potential gaps in my list that I had not heard any of the releases from: The Museum of Microcassette Art and Wood and Wire. There is a possibility that a release or two from these netlabels may have made this post.

A heartfelt thanks to all the musicians and netlabels who work so tirelessly to get some wonderful free music out there. Their dedication and creativity does not go unnoticed. And a special thanks to the people that work behind the scenes at Creative Commons, Netlabels at Archive.org and Sonic Squirrel. The photograph by Alex Lomix above is CC BY-NC.

I hope you download and enjoy the music in this post. And please, give a shout out to the musician or the netlabel every once and awhile. Here are my selections in reverse-pseudo-alphabetical order by artist.
