Queen Mab's Music
Oddly, sometimes agents have mp3s and photos on their site even when the artists don't. No, I don't understand it either. Anyway, Queen Mab's Music represent some of the UK's best folk bands, and if you're wondering what all the fuss is about, there's a full mp3 from each tucked away under the 'resources tab'. Delights include the Demon Barbers' Katy Cruel, The Lusty Smith from Horizon Award nominees Ben Murray and Rosie Doonan, and bellowhead's amazing version of the Rochdale Coconut Dance. Go grab before they change their minds, though you probably have to be considering booking them or something.
Over at the Show of Hands website, the band have released the single Crooked Man as honesty-ware. You can download it; if you like it, go back and pay them 79p. Separately, a double album from Show of Hands has turned up at my very favourite legal mp3 site, eMusic. It features many of their 'popular hits' -- you know, all those songs that everyone at the festival knows every word of. Good trick that.
