View Full Version : 4 Free Download "Indie" Sampler Albums

From Amazon. Free samplers usually hold a few gems from bands you may want to get to know more. I've only listened to the 30 second samples so far, which helps if you want to just pick a few instead of a complete album.

Cool! Thanks.

Looks like you have to download a small "Amazon MP3 Downloader" app to open the album download packs.

The Kill Rock Stars also has Bikini Kill!

Thanks Tig. I haven't used the Amazon service before so far I can at least listen on my computer. The format looks a little odd so I don't know if it will transfer to my MP3 player. Does it?

The download app allows you to go to the folder where the mp3's get downloaded to. From there, you can move them or do what you want.
Better, the app preferences menu lets you point all downloads to a specific location, as well as change the default action from adding it to the Windows Media Player, to "Do Nothing".
