Free mp3 podcasts of the best new music…
The Breakdown with Ben is an indie music podcast that attempts to break the indie stereotype, showcasing the best new sounds emerging, along with some slightly older but more underground releases in the indie, alternative and electro music scenes.
Granted, there are 1000’s of indie music blogs out there, so why follow this one? The primary difference and advantage The Breakdown holds is that instead of sharing every new sound emerging, only the best tunes are filtered and hand selected for the podcast. Hours upon hours of time and thoughtful consideration are invested to listening to a proverbial shitload of music, and only the catchiest, most original and listenable tunes will end up making the cut.
The goal is very simple: To help eliminate the dominance of shit music in popular culture.
So how do we achieve that? We create a link between the artists that are creating amazing music, and the people that want and deserve access to better music than what they are getting.
The Breakdown’s podcasts are made to be broadly appealing, suitable for playing in public places, such as workplaces, bars and at social gatherings, where lots of people with differing tastes can take something from each song.
Each podcast episode is roughly 25 songs, between 1 .5 – 2 hours long, and is uploaded to the site in a single mp3 file for the easiest of downloads to your computer or iPod, or you can immediately stream them, all 100% for free. They are generally released every 2 weeks.

Get amongst it, I hope you enjoy. If you do, please share this site with your friends, family and co-workers, in turn sharing the best music.
