RCRD LBL

"RCRD LBL is a network of ad-supported online record labels and blogs offering completely free music streams and downloads from emerging and established artists."

It's been a while since I thought about Jose Gonzalez's band called Julip. RCRD LBL launched with an exclusive Junip track. They've also got a new Spank Rock-related remix of Justice's D.A.N.C.E. (to add to your collection of 500 other D.A.N.C.E. remixes), and a song by Jacques Renault. You can also browse by label (Dim Mak, Modular, Downtown, etc) and genre. Seems okay, but it took me a lot of clicks to get each song.

yeah, you wouldn't want to support a site that actually pays bands.

Wow. Giving out mp3s and making sure bands get paid? Making it more appealing to record labels? That sounds good.

OH I'M SORRY, WE'RE INTERNET MUSIC CULTURE: WE'RE RETARDED AND WE HATE YOU.

That Grizzly Bear cover of "he hit me" that was on blogs a while ago is their exclusive now? When they link to outside blogs do they make sure those songs are on there legally? Do those artists not get paid? It seems like a mess.

Artists get paid a one-time fee, meanwhile labels get to share in the ad revenue with RCRD LBL. Seems kind of backwards to me.

Come on with the mp3s. Its not 2002 anymore, broadband is readily available. This sounds like a good idea, but they really should be doing flac.

I am still the only blog offering flac downloads?
