Independents Day

To celebrate independent music, eMusic have a special compilation CD available for subscribers (free downloads are available when you trial their service). The CD includes tracks from Ani Di Franco, Slipknot and Feeder among others with proceeds from the downloads going to the American Association of Independent Music (AIM), the charity MusiCares and a special fund for independent labels in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.

In describing independent music they state:

Independent music is the songs that have to be sung, the melodies that lodge a lump in the throat, the rhythms that lift arms toward the heavens and feet from the floor. It's music from the heart — even when it's broken. It's music propelled not by money or obligation, but inspiration, desire, joy, sadness, elation.

The album is available from 4th July to 6th July 2008.
