We’re back serving you another helping of ten fantastic delicacies from the world of open-licensed netaudio. This time around, our energy was focused on presenting selections from the ever expanding archives of If you’re unfamiliar with Jamendo, it’s a community-driven website that hosts “free, legal and unlimited music published under Creative Commons licenses”. It’s an amazing source of music discovery and exploration. At Jamendo, you’re sure to find music from international artists in any genre.

We took time to download from their vast archives and hand-picked ten amazing tracks for you to enjoy in the highest quality possible. So what’s included in this collection? We’ve got pop, rock, trip-hop, hip-hop and drum ‘n bass from the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the US. Also, in the PDF (which is now packaged with each of the audio archive downloads) you’ll notice that we’ve begun to include song lyrics whenever possible.

As always, this album’s available in three audio formats — Lossless FLAC, 320kbs and 192kbs LAME-encoded MP3. Be sure to also download the complete high-quality album art in one of the three provided formats — EPS, PDF, TIF.

Thanks again to all the participating artists! We can’t do it without you. We’d also like to extend a very special thanks to Patrick Haour of Jamendo for his gracious introduction and making this release a possibility!
