What's your favorite store to buy music?

You can mention any type of store. Best Buy, Fatbeats, Itunes... Thank you.

DIRECT FROM THE ARTIST

Nick said...

Direct from the artist or eMusic/Amazon for MP3's. I generally try to purchase from the artist as much as I can. I still have my signed copy of Hunger I bought from you!

Percy Carey said...

Thank you. So no Itunes?. most people on Twitter said Itunes.

I think most people will say iTunes because that's what they're comfortable with.
While I have no problems purchasing from iTunes, I prefer Amazon because you don't have to deal with any f*ckery from Apple. Besides that you can find more cheaper deals from Amazon.
Overall, I like the iTunes interface and experience.

But yeah, purchasing directly from the artist is better unless they screw you over with a faulty or blank CD or try to charge a ridiculous price like $15 for a 10-2 track release.

I buy from a place called Albums on the Hill or Bart's. If I buy music, then I buy vinyl. It's the king... As far as I know, iTunes doesn't sell lossless audio. To me, that's bunk. But not many people really care about it.

Add... I gotta support the local shops. What kind of personality does iTunes have? If it even has one, it isn't composed of flesh and blood. There's not many left standing. I'm in a small town, and even they're dwindling out. Shit gets more wild every day...

iTunes
FatBeats
UGHH
Best Buy

Distrakt said...

@ Nicotine Milk No doubt! You're a practical thinker. I agree with you. Vinyl is king! Fatbeats is a good stop and has blessed a lot of independents including the latest Distrakt project.
Think iTunes is dope, but between you and me, rather release wax and include a CD or download card like this: http://twitpic.com/104ir with it.

I'm a die hard Fatbeats man I started with them. Digital is dominating music so I go with the flow but I still keep a strong foundation and make sure my product is there. I'm relaunching Day By Day Entertainment (June 2009) nothing is up yet but it will be very soon. I'm glad to see you guys talking back and forth in here I think good connections can and should happen let's all build together. Thank you.

Digitally: Fatbeats, turntablelab.com, waxpoetics, and last resort is iTunes.

Vinyl: Rock & Soul, Flea Markets, and NYC bums.

Oh crap... forgot to mention the stonesthrow site. They have a dope selection.

PS: Best Buy???? No Comment!

Nicotine Milk said...

@Distrakt Word. I feel you on all that. The download card is taking president. I see it more and more. I'm a big fan of that idea. I'd never heard of Fatbeats before. I went on there for fun, and checked out Grimm's selection. They had this to say for the Gingy album:

Most people don't realize that MF Grimm was killing it long before MF Doom was MF Doom. Rumor has it that he was supposed to be rhyming next to Nas & Extra P on "Live at the Barbeque". Here he is with his 4th solo album. What's up with the Gingerbread thing? Seriously, send us an e-mail to info@fatbeats.com if you know what's that all about.

I guess they didn't connect the Brothers Grimm to MF? Someone oughta let them know...

Peace,
Cracker Jack

digitally, I'm subscribed to emusic.com. I get a lot of music there. 90 downloads a month, so around 4 or 5 releases. plus you can preview the albums there that are posted. just recently picked up the Flash album through there, as well as the new Doom joint.

I stay with used purchases mostly now through amazon.com if I want an album thats already been out for a while.

last album I picked up at a retail was probably Best Buy, the Q-Tip album. seems like a long time ago. retail stores don't interest me much... searchin' through there stock, it seems like it never changes.

waitin' on that Cormega album now. also the new Dilla album with Pete Rock. the dead prez album. those I'm plannin' on purchasing through CD, new at the store, online, wherever I can find em'.

I haven't gotten around to messin' with itunes much.

I usually end up getting all my records off Amazon. I like having a physical product to add to my collection, but if I have to I'll get my music from iTunes. Would prefer to buy direct from artist but we don't get a ton of shows up here in Canada where I get the opportunity to buy direct. If you ever do a show in Calgary Grimm I'll be the first one with tickets.

brownhornet said...

also waxpoetics.com ... they gotta digital set up there as well. so I'm checkin' for albums there from time to time.
