I’ve been noticing a trend in my inbox lately. More and more artists are just giving away music for free to their fans. In that spirit we are starting a weekly Free Music Downloads post. It’ll feature artists you may already know to the ones you should.
LOLENE: Mixtape “Cracked Not Broken” (Electro/Pop/Dance)
Lolene was about to release Elecktric Hotel then someone leaked the tracks…BOO! Lolene went into the studio and cut a mixtape and she’s releasing it for free for her Facebook fans. It’s worth the download as she tries her hand at rapping her version of “I Wish”, covering ABBA, and remixing “Rich” and “Sexy People.”
