MP3 blogs are a gold mine for free music, but few are as generous as rbally.net. Its founder, who signs himself simply "Jennings," has a passion for live indie-rock performances. His posts have included full concerts from Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, Wilco, Ryan Adams, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' recent appearance at the Coachella Festival. While you're there, check out Giant Drag's demo covers of the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" and Journey's "Who's Crying Now." The site is usually updated with new MP3s daily, and its archive will keep you busy for weeks.

The Wu-Tang Clan has kept itself busy with a clothing line, acting careers (sort of), and solo projects aplenty. The hip-hop collective recently announced that in addition to the string of upcoming solo albums due in 2006, Ol' Dirty Bastard's posthumous LP, A Son Unique, will finally see the light of day. At Wutangcorp.com, you can download a few tracks from ODB's unfinished opus, as well as an exclusive homage mix put together by the Wu, and more than 200 studio and unreleased MP3s chronicling the Clan's past three years.
