Published Sep 09, 2008As great and convenient as you may think iTunes is, it does kind of suck that you have to go through a middle man. Thankfully more and more labels are giving downloaders a chance to get their tunes straight from the horses mouth, like, say, Domino, which now has its own download shop up and humming.
At Domino Digital you can access the labels entire catalog in 320 Kpbs download form. The downloads are DRM-free, come in various formats and you can preview a track before you buy. Also, the shop sports a rather slick interface that lets you browse by "Classics, "Reissues, "Artists, etc., and come minus any obnoxious pics of Bono.
The pricing is basically the same as iTunes, with your average full album costing about seven to nine dollars. And while browsing for your favourite tunes from groups like the Pastels, Orange Juice and Ulrich Schnauss, you can get a "free gift. Right now its Juana Molinas new single, the title track from here upcoming Un Dia album, which hits October 6. And free is always good, right?
