Amie Street

I've recently bought my first few songs on Amie Street, and am liking the service more and more. The pricing structure is conducive to exploring for new music, and today a significant amount of new music was added from fairly well known artists (Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Cat Power, Pavement, etc.). Granted, the selection is still far from what iTunes or Amazon offer (the later of which is an investor), but they seem to be adding more and more.

Beyond being DRM free, one of my favorite features is that the songs you buy are stored on the site. This means that you can stream your music from anywhere, and should something go wrong with your computer, you have a backup source (this has always been one of my fears with iTunes).

The other interesting bit is that you can setup a stream of the music you purchase. You can take a look at mine here.

This combination is slowly making Amie Street something I can't live without. Alright, that's a bit of an extreme statement, but nonetheless - do check it out and let me know what you think.
