The Internet Underground Music Archive (IUMA) is a new MPEG distribution channel for independent musicians. MPEG demos are in the demos directory on, and music files are in the music directory. (Only 15 songs so far.) A free Xing Player for Windows can be downloaded from /pub/electronic- publications/IUMA/mpeg_players. Check the "info/submit" directory for instructions on contributing.
