I think the jig is up for DRM-ed music. Amazon has launched their MP3 store with 2 million indie and major label tracks, all DRM-free. You can still beat the price at eMusic and Audio Lunchbox but you can’t beat the selection.
eMusic has launched DRM-free audiobooks at $9.99 for two books. The selection looks pretty good, too.
The album of last week was Hot Hot Heat’s Happiness LTD.
The album of the week is Manu Chao’s La Radiolina .
Rhapsody is now selling DRM-free MP3s from Universal Music Group. Bizarrely, they are only available via the Windows-only desktop software, not the web site. On the plus side, they actually have one listing of all of the available MP3s, unlike the other stores selling the Universal MP3s. You still can’t search the MP3 offerings, though.
The album of the week is Rilo Kiley’s Under The Blacklight.
