Excellent Earfuls
These sites give new meaning to “easy listening”.

Grooveshark | listen.grooveshark.com
A free, music-streaming hub with a humongous library that will put others to shame. Create and save a playlist or check out Grooveshark Radio for song recommendations. You can also start a radio station by uploading your own music.

Radio Raksaksa | www.radioraksaksa.com
Homegrown, indie internet radio with a simple goal to play music that doesn’t suck. Be prepared for an interesting ride as it takes you through non-mainstream music from all over the world and hosts radio shows that are out of this world!

Record Label | rcrdlbl.com
Avast, me hearties! There’s no longer a need to steal music when kick@ss artists are offering legit free downloads on a daily basis. There’s also a mixtape each week from artists like Sleigh Bells and A-Trak… Arrrrr!

Soundcloud | www.soundcloud.com
Revolutionising the way we share music, Soundcloud gives your music an identity and lets other users comment at specific moments throughout the track to provide valuable feedback on your work. Way to make music come alive, huh?

Moodstream | moodstream.gettyimages.com
A player for all seasons. 1st, program your mood with the customisable settings, or choose from the presets. The player not only streams music, it also displays images (anything from wildlife images to men at the Olympics) to correspond with your mood.
