Other Music Opens Digital Store
New York-based record store Other Music–a longtime haven for the city’s crate diggers–recently joined the ranks of the digital music world. The store proper was born in 1995, coincidentally the first year mp3s became more widely available. But, as even the casual music fans know, times are a changin’, and the decision to swing open its digital doors was an effort to prove, according to the store, that "real record stores run by real music fans can still survive and thrive."
The assortment of tracks and albums is hand-picked by Other Music employees, and the site features a quality standalone player for previewing music. For the moment, tracks will only be available to those living in the States. All songs will be sold as DRM-free mp3s, of premium quality (320kbps). So if you’re looking for the latest from Tujiko Noriko or Terry Riley, or even Bloc Party, check out the catalog.
