Where do you download?

Well as the music download services have proliferated so has the confusion. I have covered this before but in the interests of helping you all get your rock and roll kicks with the least amount of grief possible you should check out Wired for sound: Music download services that rock for an update on what’s out there. This article is in no way comprehensive and is American-centric but it’s a good start. If you are Canadian you can add Puretracks to the list (where the new Tragically Hip single Vaccination Scar is available now) and those of you in Europe should check out OD2. Keep in mind that all this stuff is evolving with Sony, Microsoft and Virgin about to join the fray and Apple’s iTunes set to expand overseas so keep your eyes and ears open as everything will have changed a year from now.
