best of 2013 :: Favorite MP3s

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

And now the final GIMME TINNITUS best of 2013 of 2013, the favorite mp3s post, featuring 103 mp3s!

The songs are listed in mainly alphabetical order by artist, but if you want to know what song I listened to the most it was California Girls by Shark? followed closely by The Observer by Hive Bent, but really you should just listen to them all. Admitted, some of the songs featured here in this post are not actually from 2013, some are reissues, others are songs that I found myself listening to a lot, but the vast majority is all 2013.

You can play individual tracks using the tiny play buttons next to each mp3 link, OR you can stream all the songs in this mix using the streampad player at the bottom of the page, OR you can just download any or all of the tracks at your leisure and play them using a digital media player of your choice.

GIMME TINNITUS' Best of 2013

best of 2013 :: Pay-What-You-Want/Free Releases

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Here’s 23 awesome releases from 2013 that used either the pay-what-you-want model or required an email to download or were just straight up free. I’ve included some sort of streaming media and an mp3 for all the albums below. Now stream up some amazing music and go pay-what-you-want (where available), and remember, if you download something for $0 but then find yourself listening to it over and over, you can always go back a buy it properly for a significantly higher price (and/or buy band merch and/or go to shows and buy directly frrom the band). The pay-what-you-want model (or giving away an album) is a great way for an artist to increase the number of people listening to their music, but it also a way for the listener to connect with the artist and show support. I guess what I am trying to say is that you should give $$ to artists. Every dollar matters.
