the found music site
in case you are new here....we post irregularly to our favorite links to rare and live music available for download. we do not link to lossless files, as we are half deaf ourselves. we also don't host any files, as we do not comprehend the technology. we simply stumble across this stuff and share the links. please support all the websites and bands that do all the real work getting this music into your ears. all the sites listed below have more great music and content. most of these links will go dead at some point so grab the music while you can.

We are based out of Providence, Rhode Island. We offer no apologies, nor should you hold that against us. More info here on 75orLess at any of these web pages:

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
