My friend recommended Soundowl to me, I think it is exactly the right choice for downloading free music. Actually it is really useful and has helped me get a collection of songs so far. But there’s one problem – its music library doesn’t update very often. It may return no matched results when searching for a newly released song. It usually takes a week or even longer time for the site to update a new song that I was looking for. So, do you know a site that frequently updates new songs and provides smooth download?
