Catching The Waves of great free music

The Catching The Waves (or is it "sound the free trumpet"?) blog is an interesting place to go exploring for good free music. As the tagline says "Reviews of (legitimately) free netlabel and/or Creative Commons music. Yes, the music is completely free. Yes, the musicians know. Yes, they welcome donations and purchases. No, you won't be arrested. Dive in."

It has some excellent reviews of truly free and independent music and appears to be a genuine labor of love. Well worth a bookmark for friends of new independent music. I love days when I bump into sites like this! And maybe one day it will even feature a section for the creative commons remixing scene. :-)

Thank you very much for writing about my greasy little blog, which is definitely called "Catching The Waves" - it took me a while to settle on a name, and my web address suffered the consequences. Stoopid internet...

Catching The Waves is less a labour of love and more the work of a wally. I claim no expertise - the blog is merely a reflection of my questionable taste in music. I'm always pleasantly surprised at the high quality of legitimately free music that can be found in the dusty corners of the net; CTW is my way of thanking the musicians who generously share their work for free.

I've been meaning to write about CCMixter for some time. It's on my "to do" list.

Thanks again for the mention. Keep up the good work with your blog. Bookmarked! :)
