iTunes vs. Amazon, Take 2

In my previous post about online music stores, I mentioned that my current preference was to use mp3 store instead of iTunes to purchase music online. Since that post was written, iTunes has largely switched to selling non-drm 256 kbps AAC files. While the Amazon music store is still a favorite (especially since it works in Linux as well as in Windows,) I’ve started using iTunes again, especially when I get gift cards for the store ;-)

When browsing the iTunes Music Store, be sure to look for the little ‘+’ icon which denotes drm-free files.

In related news, a few of my newest albums/artists added to my Library are:

Coldplay – Viva La Vida
Death Cab for Cutie – Narrow Stairs
Gnarls Barkley – The Odd Couple
Lisa Lavie – Everything or Nothing

All of these artists are favorites for me, and some day I may getting around to actually reviewing these albums more in depth here on the blog. We’ll see!

    [Subject: Music Suggestion] I was thinking about this earlier to tell you, and it seems like the right time! I recently tripped over a song that you might like. It’s called “You Don’t Know Me” and its a Ben Folds song–with Regina Spektor featured. I’ve fallen in love with it.
