"Each month, the Music Alliance Pact – a team of 30 + music blogs from around the world simultaneously post tracks
chosen by each blog."
I'm sure this has been posted before,but I reckon it's worth another mention. Step out of your comfort zone and experience great pop music from around the world.
England's track is chosen by the Guardian music blog
There is also an archive dating back to October 2008 at The Pop Cop blog...Where it all started. Unfortunately the earlier
ones are no longer availble to download, but I think 2011 and 2010 are mostly availble. So quite a bit of free music .
