lala.com

I don't know if anyone is familiar with this site, but it is fucking EXCELLENT. Basically, it streams damn near any album you can think of (within reason - being signed is a plus, as is having a little bit of press, but last night I listened to Amesouers, Fen, Slough Feg, and Queensryche on there), and with the artist's permission. If you're like me and you hate interwebz bullshit like torrents and blogsearching for illegal downloads, lala is really nice.

You can play any album once for free, but then if you want to relisten as many times as you want, "web albums" are like 75 cents and you can stream it forever. And it's way faster than waiting for albums to download as mp3s. I recommend it.

I was kinda wondering how you heard the Amesoeurs and Fen albums in light of your distaste for illegal downloads.

Yeah, haha. I certainly prefer streams to downloads.

It's actually not your typical stream quality. Since they're also downloadable, they're just basically mp3s posted to the web.

I don't like streams because I do most of my listening on the go.

Well, I can dig that, especially once you move and have to go fifty miles for running water.

I don't like mp3s because they suck... paying for them is such a ridiculous concept to me.

See, my iTunes is entirely populated by things I own the CDs of. It's jus a thing I have about music that I won't get into. But lala is kind of my cheat. Not paying, not stealing...just listening to see if I should buy.
