People's Music Store: Build Your Own Record Shop

(via)
"People's Music Store is a newly launched DIY online music store. It was created by the founder of MP3 reseller Bleep.com, Ged Day. People's Music Store styles itself as "the first music store entirely powered by music fans." Basically the service allows you to set up your own custom-designed record store, with music chosen from a catalogue of indie record labels (so far no major record label music). The idea is that you earn points, equivalent to 10% of the price of the single, EP or album that you sell. These points can only be used to buy other music items on the People's Music Store site. There are more than 650 stores currently, with over 250,000 songs in the catalogue - most appear to be available at $0.99 per song or $8.99 per album. The site claims to be "working with" 4,500 labels, including 4AD, XL, Rough Trade, Matador, Dominio, and Ged Day's own Warp. Other than the lack of major label music, there is another minor annoyance for those of us who don't live in the U.S. - international users will frequently run into a "we're sorry, but this release is not available in your country" message. However on the plus side, all the music available for download is DRM-free and at high quality 320Kbps." [reawriteweb]

PC Magazine Review: Amazon MP3 (beta) 10-3-2007

"Amazon encodes some tracks at 256 Kbps and others at a variable bit rate that averages about the same. Audio purists will point to the better fidelity from AAC and WMA files encoded at the same bit rate, but those same purists are probably more likely to buy CDs and rip lossless tracks anyway. To my ears, the Amazon MP3 downloads sounded splendid, with crisp highs, full lows, and not a trace of distortion." [pcmag.com] Cost is $0.89-0.99 per song; $5.99-9.99 per album

PayPlay.FM | MP3 Music Download Store

A subscription-free alternative to eMusic. "PayPlay.FM, offers 1.4 million tracks from indie artists, all of them available in either MP3 or WMA format...The store is unique in that it sells tracks in both unprotected MP3 and DRM-encrypted WMA formats. Why bother with the latter? For starters, you'll pay a bit less: 77 cents per WMA track versus 88 cents for MP3s (192 Kbps).
