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…

Free Soul Music Saturday for April 21, 2012

Welcome to Free Soul Music Saturday. We pick through the best free Soul Music on the internet so you don’t have to.

If you only download one thing on this list (and you should download it all), make sure it’s Mar’s incredible debut, “Seeing Her Naked.” It’s the best thing I’ve heard all month and it’s sure to be one of the best free EPs of 2012. This is Contemporary R&B at its finest.

There are some really solid beat tapes that hit this week as well. I highly recommend them all. 

Here is my complete listening list for the week, and here is the Spotify playlist for the week (good for one month).

Thanks to all the artists, producers, DJs, podcasters and music bloggers that bring this music to light!
