People's Music Store: Build Your Own Record Shop        10th February 2009

Peoples Music Store is an independent company set up to give music fans the power to champion and promote the music they love. In an industry dominated by corporate music download services, we offer a friendly alternative which puts music-lovers at the forefront. It was created by the founder of MP3 reseller Bleep.com, Ged Day.

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 will frequently run into a "we're sorry, but this release is not available in your country" message. However on the plus side, all the music available for download is DRM-free and at high quality 320Kbps.

Creating your own personal music store, jam-packed with your favourite tunes, is simple and is completely FREE.
