Electronica is heavily represented,
like on Bleep.com. There are some 'big name' artists
available too, when they have released via indie
labels. For example I found some music by Pixies,
Arctic Monkeys, Oasis and Franz Ferdinand.
There are more than 650 stores
currently, with over 250,000 songs in the catalogue
- most appear to be available at $0.99 per song or
$8.99 per album. The site claims to be "working
with" 4,500 labels, including 4AD, XL, Rough Trade,
Matador, Dominio, and Ged Day's own Warp.
Other than the lack of major label
music, there is another minor annoyance for those of
us who don't live in the U.S. - international users
