The Hold Steady - "Stay Positive"



Jimmy Eat World - "The Middle"


My dream of every album ever made being made available online in mp3 format DRM-free and subscription-free and at reasonable rates moves closer as Amazon launch their mp3 store in the UK.

Although, despite all the bargains to entice new customers, their standard price still appears to charge UK customers more than US ones - just like iTunes.

re: Amazon. Feels like the future has at long last arrived.

On pricing, we'll see what happens. Today's Observer album of the year - Bon Iver, not exactly mainstream - is available for just 1.58. At that level I don't think it much matters whether it is in dollars or sterling.
