Other Music launches digital music store

April 25, 2007


Other Music, the independent New York retailer from Manhattan’s East Village, has launched its digital download music store on Monday.

The online store has hundreds of labels and thousands of artists available in DRM-free MP3 format and you can find albums in the $8.99 to $14.99 range and individual songs for $1.11. Among the indie labels featured on the site on launch day were Beggars Banquet, Domino, Mush Records, Paw Tracks, Thrill Jockey Records and many others.

Thus far, the Other Music site is only enabled for North American sales, but the retailer states in an email blast to customers that it soon hopes to sell its downloads internationally.

“Times are changing in the record business, and Other Music is not afraid of the change,” reads an announcement from the store. “It is very important to us that in this new era, real record stores run by real music fans can still survive and thrive. We are a real record store going digital and we are open for business.”
