Online indie music retailer eMusic has launched eMusic Selects, a curated boutique music space that will showcase unsigned new artists.

Each month, eMusic's staff will handpick up to two artists to be featured prominently on the site's homepage and receive in-depth editorial coverage on the eMusic Selects page and on the site's blog. Subscribers will be able to access a free song download from each act as well. The artists will agree to provide their often previously unreleased music exclusively to eMusic in the digital format for 60 days.

eMusic Selects kicks off spotlighting Brooklyn band High Places and Michigan trio Breathe Owl Breathe.
