    ES File Explorer (free in the market) can open zip files and allow you to copy files out of it, or unzip it to a folder. It will work for local media only, (you can't open a zip file on a computer accessed across wifi such as your PC. You first have to copy it to your tablet).

    Other than the convenience of a single download for multiple files, why would anyone zip a music file? Most music formats are already compressed; zipping might actually result in a LARGER file (try it with an mp3 or jpg).

    Warze maybe?
    I've seen many pirated music albums distributed this way from torrent sites.

    Definately for convenience of a single file, although the .rar archive is much better for this. Great when sending multiple small files or breaking down a huge one into manageable sizes.
