Found this site from a recent story on ‘The Screensavers’.
Magnatune is an online music site that does what an online music site should. Artists submit their music directly to the site where anyone can stream hi quality versions. If you like the music and want to but it, you basically pay what you think its worth, and then youï¿½re free to download it in whatever format you wish, including uncompressed wav. 50 percent of the sale then goes directly to the musician.
The site is laid out very intuitively and provides many ways to hear the different genreï¿½s they offer. I’ve already found some really good music on there that I would have never heard otherwise. I havenï¿½t actually bought any music yet, but I think Iï¿½m going to order a couple today.
