You know we all do it – no need to be shy. I’m not talking about pooping here. I’m talking about downloading music illegally. I like to support artists when I can, and certainly try to buy the albums my favorites put out, but I have a serious addiction. I would be living on ramen noodles every day if I actually had to pay for all the music I listen to. Fo real.

Leave it to RCRD LBL to ease my guilty conscious. The lovely folks at RCRD LBL have been popping two new tunes a day into my inbox for as long as I can remember. There are a few things to mention when it comes to these folks that I see as an advantage over other sites that offer free music:

1. No third-party downloads. Most of the time, you can download a song directly from RCRD LBL’s website. Forget about mediafire or clicking on a link that takes you to another blog that links to the song on another blog – all of that is history for the RCRD LBL reader.
2. Tunes can be delivered directly via e-mail. I’m a big fan of their daily newsletter. I have a separate folder in my e-mail specifically for the music they send me every day. When you don’t keep up with it, you can have 438 of these e-mails to go through, like me.
3. Don’t like e-mails on the reg? You can type your favorite artist into their search tool and find a free jam or two that way.
4. If RCRD LBL says it’s ok, it’s probably OK for you to download that free tune. No guilt necessary. Just happy, wallet-friendly jams until you can’t jam any more.
5. They know what’s up and have really broadened my musical horizons. I download everything they send, even if I’ve never heard of it. It’s a great way to expose yourself to new stuff.

Pop on over to their site and explore, sign up for their newsletter, and you’ll be well on your way to boosting that mp3 collection.

PS – I noticed they have an option to register. Not sure what the perks are of that, but I would be curious to hear if anyone else has an account.
