Deals on Amie Street

Just read that indie digital retailer Amie Street, who I'm a big fan of, has signed a deal with Beggars Group (Rough Trade, XL, 4AD), Matador and Polyvinyl, adding their music to the site today. What does this mean for you?

Official word from Amie Street is they're working on the "US Only" hurdle...

Get 'em fast. If you're unaware, songs on Amie Street start off free and as they become popular, the price goes up. It caps off at $0.98 per song, so it never gets out of hand. Format is DRM-free MP3s (160 kbps, I think). There's also a deal today that credit is 50% off! So I just bought $50 worth of credit for $25. Sweet. Now, we just have to wait for them to let us Canadians/rest o' the world at those new songs. Leave a comment if you find any good covers on there!

Very cool stuff, thanks for sharing!

There's a version of Blitzkreig Bop done by Yo La Tengo on there. And Nico doing My Funny Valentine.

Ooh, good call on the Yo La Tengo cover from Genius + Love = Yo La Tengo. I'm tired of saying this, but the whole album is FREE if you're American! Preview sounded good though!
