Co-founded by Peter Rojas of Engadget fame and Josh Deutsch of Downtown Records, RCRD LBL launched yesterday and seems to be an excellent new method of discovering new music, artists, and getting your hands on some free legal tracks with no DRM. Their blog post best describes what they are all about:

“In a world where many people get their music for free, we wanted to create a site where bands we loved could put their music out there for free AND get paid for it. RCRD LBL is a new model and an experiment, putting great music out there for free and with absolutely no DRM. We hope you enjoy the music and support what we’re doing by making RCRD LBL part of your daily music diet.

In some ways we’re a music blog, written by people who want to bring you cool new music day in, day out. In other ways, we’re a record label, championing, signing and partnering with bands we believe in. We’ll have tons of exclusive tracks from everyone from Mos Def to Switch to Dirty on Purpose to Cold War Kids, but we’re also working with an amazing roster of partner labels (see below) who will also be blogging and giving away music on the site. And since we’re a blog, we’ll also be pointing you to best of what else is out there on the web.”

From what I’ve seen and heard, this is just the type of thing that could slowly help to turn the music industry on its head… and that’s a great thing!
