We Loved : 2011
[wpcol_1half id="" class="" style=""] [expand title="(Disclaimer+)"]"We Love" is a big one click download of carefully selected individual tracks sourced from reputable blogs & artists we love. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if we've uploaded a non-promo track in error or to send us something you love. [/expand]
This collection is pretty much how my year in music looked, or at least how my year in free music looked (according to my iTunes I listened to Feist so much they'll probably report me for stalking).
The "cover star" is Lianne La Havas. For me she's a great example of the kind of talent coming out of the UK at the moment, making really incredible music but who a couple of years ago might have been stuffed unfairly in to a small box or passed over entirely as a marketing nightmare, instead in 2011 she was taking the industry by storm.
Whilst usually I would only expect most people to enjoy a handful of tracks from the usual "We Love" compilations, this really is a no-brainer selection of great music, so if you only download one from PMOI, let it be this one.
Music is never really "free", the artists who make it and generously share it with us put their all in to it and deserve our ears and our support, so please listen, spread the word, buy their albums and go to see them live.
