The folks at PayPlay.fm dropped me a line discussing their huge indie catalog of DRM-free music. While you won’t find any Sting or Beatles hidden in their back pages, you can enjoy 32 Below and Elika.
Clearly these boys aren’t going to take down the ITMS, eMusic, or even the selection at Goodwill (there’s always a something by the Stones or Devo in the record bin for the intrepid hunter), but it’s interesting to see a small company make a go of it in the wild and woolly world of media sales. MP3s, at 88 cents per, cost more because the codec is more costly, but WMA music is a mere 77 cents. Take that, 99 cent music that you actually want to listen to!
