We’ve added more prominent (but discreet, we hope) links to iTunes Music Store MP3s on relevant album and song pages around the site. Obviously lots of people tend to prefer torrent sites and similar things to download new music for free, which we don’t condone but facts is facts.
Music Nerds is all about finding new music and trying new things though, and iTunes can actually be simpler and easier to get an MP3 you are curious to hear, and for $.99 each you can try a few here and there and not even miss the money.
So anyway, if it’s available in your area and something piques your curiousity, the links are there. Remember also that writers on the site get paid through such links, so it’s an especially apposite way to test out new sounds if it’s on a review page you like.
Honesty and music nerdiness compels us to add that even if you do use torrents and stuff at the complete exclusion of legal MP3s, we’re still glad you’re finding new music and we hope you’ll post a comment about the things you find and the ones you already know! There are comment sections on every song and album page. It’s all about the music, man…
