Confession: I still buy my music online instead of torrenting it. And after years of enduring an unfulfilling relationship with iTunes, last month I finally broke things off. I headed over to Amazon. I haven’t looked back yet.
This seems… backwards. If you want to buy OAR’s new album on Amazon, you’re going to end up paying 50 per cent more for a digital download than you would for a physical disc.
These days it takes a little more effort to push an entire album of music. For some, it’s free digital downloads, for Mos Def, it’s t-shirts.
