New Music stores in MC
« on: November 03, 2007, 11:44:44 am »

Hey,
I stumbled over two services that I though would mix quite well with Media Center.
The first service is Magnatune. It was the first “revolutionary” label. The split the income with the artist, and they were the first to use the now famouspci Radiohead model. When I first head the news about Radiohead I actually though they had signed with Magnatunes. Their API is located here

Another great site is Jamendo. They have lots of great music too. It is a great site. It is a similar model, although it is closer to myspace (at least the way myspace ought to be). I.e. a music network, or platform, in which one can download music and pay if one likes the music. This site is closely integrated into the Creative Commons movement.  Their API should be located here, but when I try to fetch it, I am returned to the front page. One can get music as mp3 or ogg vorbis via p2p (bittorrent and emule). 

If think these services mixes well with other services such as CD Baby, which can also be accessed from within MC. One can find great music both places, and both sites are certainly “nicer” than myspace.

I seem to recall that the founder of Magnatune is featured in the movie Good Copy, Bad Copy — an extraordinary documentary! He might not be, though. . .

Cheers,
Rasmus

Edit: Edited the title.

I do not know if anybody tried these new sites out. I think Jamendo is quite fantastic! There is a lot of not-so-good music, but I have also found some gems. I thought the Wavers were quite nice, even though it is instrumental.
