...is one of the reasons why I like the internet. Unlike lazy and over-fussy me, who posts once a decade, and usually about stuff that's been available on the web for even longer, Net-Label Review posts very regularly about the newest releases from netlabels. The site's title is self-explanatory, I suppose. But it could change its name to "Visit me and there's a fairly good chance you'll discover some excellent free music" without causing palpitations. Though "Net-Label Review" is slightly snappier, I'll concede.
The best part of NLR is the enthusiasm. There's a sense of excitement at discovering what's out there and an appreciation of how lucky we are to get music for free.
NLR has pointed me to some terrific stuff in the past and will no doubt do so in the future. I use it and other sites like it to cherry-pick and discard, and then once I've decided that I really like the music I've found, I let it ooze onto Catching The Waves. In other words, if you have broadband and a hunger for the latest sounds, unburdened by record companies and marketing, head there as soon as possible and make Catching The Waves redundant. There are other netlabel sites whose work I leech off too, and who I intend to mention in due course, but NLR is the very first site to link here, so it's hats off and warm handshakes all round.
There should be a link to the site somewhere in the right hand column, if my crappy computing skills will allow it.
