Free music roundup

The Wednesday Morning Download column at Salon just started updating again after an October hiatus. In celebration, here’s my own roundup of free downloads:

If you didn’t snag a copy of this month’s Wired magazine, featuring a CD of Creative Commons-licensed tracks by such artists as David Byrne, My Morning Jacket, the Beastie Boys, Thievery Corporation, and Spoon, you can now download all the tracks from the Internet Archive.

Sub Pop’s RSS feed linked to tracks from the Postal Service, Saint Etienne, and the Shins among others.

The erstwhile author of Salon’s column, Doveman, has been linking some interesting stuff from his blog. This week: an acoustic cover of Tears for Fears’ Head Over Heels by Samamidon. And Metafilter points to a bunch of mash-ups by DJ Riko, including my favorite, Walk Like An Egyptian Devil (which pairs the Bangles with the Rolling Stones and Felix Da Housecat).
