mp3hugger is an indie music blog based off the Irish coast towards Iceland. It started in September 2005 to introduce new music to people who may not otherwise get to hear it. The songs on mp3hugger are strictly only available to download for 12 days – mind you nowadays you can stream them forever. Our intention is not to violate copyright laws so if you are the owner of an mp3 posted here and are unhappy about its use, please email us and we will delete it immediately.
In June 2008 mp3hugger set up a record label called Indiecater. It has nice stuff that you can listen to and buy too.
