This is the new song “i don’t care” by “i am poet.“. 19-year-old musician Maximilian Hohenstatt released his self produced EP “phonological.” earlier this year under Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license. He describes himself as an “electronic, melancholic singer/songwriter”.


You can download the new single “Get Some” of the Swedish artist “Lykke Li” for free from her website. The download link will be send to the e-mail address you enter together with your country. Also included is the b-side “Paris Blue”.

Here is the video clip from director Johan Söderberg:

Trent Reznor, the front man and leader behind the Nine Inch Nails, started a new project called “How To Destroy Angels” together with his wife Mariqueen Maandig. The third man is Atticus Ross, who was credited as a producer and programmer for the last four NIN albums.

How To Destroy Angels released a self-titled 6-track EP in June 2010. Like the last two NIN albums it was released under a Creative Commons license and can be downloaded from the website.

The music style is not too different from what Nine Inch Nails were doing the last years. If you like them you’ll probably like HTDA.

Besides the free 320 kbps MP3 version, you can choose to buy a lossless (FLAC/ALAC) version vor $2.00 USD. Included is the music video for “The Space In Between” in 1080p and 480p video quality.

Professor Kliq - MovementsU.S.-based 24 year old Professor Kliq produces music somewhere between Readiohead, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy. He is currently studying music at the Columbia College in Chicago and describes his style as something between Big-Beat, Ambient and Trip-Hop. All his music is licensed under CC-BY-NC-SA.

The Kyoto Connection - No Headphones Required

Here’s another cool band releasing their music under Creative Commons licenses.

The Kyoto Connection is based in Argentina and released their sixth album “No Headphones Required” in July 2010. It contains eleven songs in 80s style synthpop. Each of their albums is available under CC-BY-NC-ND from the Internet Archive which hosts a lot of CC licensed music. The album is pretty awesome. You should check it out. I really can’t stop listening to it.

Here are my two favorite tracks:

  • The Kyoto Connection – Glorious Love Song

All albums can be downloaded from the band’s website.


Another free track is available from German Electro duo Moonbootica.

For those of you who like free music. It’s already several months ago that Fonzerelli released a free track. I like it very much. Fonzerelli is one of my favourite House producers. And I admit, you have to register for his mailing list. But you can unregister afterwards. The track is worth it!
