I'm tired of downloading pirated music.
Now that I have a decent job with a small excess, I'd like to purchase them.
What are some good music services where I can buy good cheap abums?
Spotify is the best investment if you frequently listen to shit that isn't extremely obscure. If you buy your extremely obscure shit on the side, it still stands.
If you wanna support the artists, then either bandcamp or the labels they release their shit on.
Otherwise if you want it cheaper than the price that they set, you'll have to buy it used or through some un-licensed vendor. You might find a deal from something like Amazon once in a while, but it's rare.
If you're going to buy music you should start a record collection. CD's are disposable and Digital is like nothing, you will forget you even have them.
A record collection will give you a little bit of joy every time you see them on your shelf. You'll think, damn I have some cool records. Just imagine that quiet night in, sipping on a stiff drink with the lights dimmed and your turntable on the go.
well It's still way better than buying digital. At least you get a physical thing for a while even if you throw them away later.
Digital is dumb considering how easy it is to acquire, you should just throw money into the wind instead.
Spotify is worse than downloading music because you are wasting bandwidth and the money is going to spotify not the artist. Spotify gives like .006 cents - .0084 cents per stream (according to a quick google search) meaning you would have to listen to around 119 songs before they even get a dollar.
