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]

Audiobaba | Music Search

by 1 other
"Audiobaba is a next generation music search engine that allows you to find songs by acoustic similarity." Only plays 30 second samples. Artists can upload music, so it might be a way to discover independent artists, if you don't mind sorting through the haystack. Shows album covers which is kind of cool.

Indie Launchpad - About

by 1 other
"There is an absolute ton of excellent music in the world, but relatively few good outlets. For several years, radios have been satisfied to pump out the same old stuff and people are getting sick of it, I certainly am. In the last year, Podcasting has seen a huge explosion of awareness for many independent musicians, but for all the podcasts out there, there's still a miniscule amount of the population actually listening to them.
