BEST OF 2012 – Top 10 Free Independent Soul Music Releases

This is it! The first of our Best of 2012 lists. This week we highlight the absolute best free Soul Music that hit the net all year.

Man, I feel ike I say this every year, but 2012 especially was an amazing year for free independent Soul and R&B. The sheer volume of material that was released this year really made my job difficult. But I’ve thought long and hard about these choices. And these releases are the ones that held my attention and/or made me re-visit them for multiple listenings. In this age of disposable music, these are the albums and EPs that rose to the top. Without further ado…
