Local radio station WFMU has posted a totally legal and free sampler (assembled by Badmaster Records) filled with Philly underground favorites on their Free Music Archive website. Click on the pic for a direct link to the zip file. The FMA is a massive Creative Commons project in the works that I am definitely excited to see fleshed out later on in the year. I admittedly haven’t paid as much attention to the local scene here as I should but I intend to in the future.
You can get a fairly good idea of whats in store with the FMA project by checking out their first 2 samplers (also free to download.) Volume 1 and Volume 2. Awesome tracks from Kinski, Dan Deacon, Sic Alps and Vivian Girls (to namedrop a few).
Speaking of locals, you can expect a BTID netlabel release sometime in the near future from one of our very own. Cool, eh?
