Urban Outfitters: 24 free downloads

It has become increasing popular for various companies to associate themselves with music in the alternative world, particularly apparel retailers; i.e. Converse, Levi’s and Doc Martens to name a few, the latter which we featured the other day. These corporations support new artists and offer free music downloads. Urban Outfitters proffers five free songs every Monday and also offers free playlist downloads from iTunes. Currently a number of artists that we have presented here in the past–Arcade Fire, Best Coast, Deerhunter, Neon Indian, Ra Ra Riot, Magic Kids, of Montreal, Les Savy Fav, and !!!–are free until the end of the year (24 in all). Click here to download. Yeasayer, the experimental rock band from Brooklyn, is part of this compilation with the song “Madder Red” which is the Song of the Day.
