Donuts and Milk does Music - For Free!

The creative minds behind Donuts and Milk (Jordan and Jamen) have decided to give this blog space of tidbits a direction and vision. That vision, is music. To clarify, this won't be just your typical blog about our favorite bands and music and why their music is so spectacular. Our posts will focus on the music we are following and......... each blog post will offer up FREE MUSIC by that artist! Jordan and I dig the online music streaming you get with great services such as Grooveshark because its free and its legal! But what about taking your favorite songs with you to play in the car or at the gym? People still want the mp3's to add to their iPods and smart phones as well as burning their favorite songs to CD's.

Music nowadays is moving farther and farther away from the money of album sales. The trend is moving towards free music, free giveaways, and free perks for following bands on their fan sites with the goal of attracting people to their music and to come and see their live shows. Almost all artists and bands offer up free song downloads for their fans and Jordan and I plan to do all the legwork by posting all of the links to free music here on Donuts and Milk.

For our first free music share, I would like to personally blog about one of the bands I enjoy listening to. That band is Coldplay. Now you may all be familiar with the movie quote from the 40 Year Old Virgin that states "You know how I know you're gay....because you like Coldplay", but I honestly enjoy their music. It takes a lot of talent to have a fan following across all continents and I think a large part of their success has a lot to do with the passion and presence of their live music. A wonderful example of their live music presence can be seen at the end of their music video for the song "Fix You". Watch the video on YouTube at the following link: http://bit.ly/c5jpaR.

If you happen to be a fan of Coldplay's live music as well, you will be interested in the bands release of their live album LeftRightLeftRightLeft. It is offered up on the bands website as a FREE DOWNLOAD! Click on the link below to download the live versions of "Clocks", "Viva La Vida", "Fix You" and others! Enjoy!

Grooveshark Update: New Music Widget and News!

As a follow up to Jordan's wonderful overview of a wonderful music streaming service, I wanted to announce the addition of the Groveshark music widget to the right side of the Donuts blog page! The Grooveshark playlist features some favorite songs provided by Jordan and myself. Enjoy the tunes and check out Grooveshark!

Also as an update, if you are a Grooveshark junky you should know that their VIP service rates are increasing from $3 a month starting in December. If you sign up as a VIP now you can lock in that service price as well as experience some extra perks and features for VIP members. I myself have become a VIP member recently. Grooveshark itself is a free service, but it may pay to become a member. Read a more thorough review at my Tech Trends blog at the following link: http://thetechtrends.blogspot.com/2010/10/grooveshark-follow-up.html
