Music and Where to Get It

My friend Ian, perhaps in a listening rut, asked me once where I find new music. Of course the Internet is the answer, but typing “really good music” into Google isn’t usually that effective. There are thousands of great artists out there, yet chances are you’ll never hear them unless someone you know hears them first. Short of having friends in the know, where to find the tunes?

Well here’s one place: Epitonic, a site that promotes itself rightly as the bearer of “Hi Quality Free MP3 Music.”

Browse the sundry genres, download oodles of songs, and enjoy your shiny, new, custom tunes. If you don’t find at least one new artist you like, then I’ll eat my indie rock hat. But if your patience is short, you may also try the

Epitonic Radio and just let the experts choose for you.

In Earshot

I only really read it for Canucks coverage, but even still it’s nice that The Vancouver Sun finally redesigned its hideously awful website to look like it was designed this century.
