Get independent artists … cheap

logo.gifIf you’re into independent artists and up for a little digging, you should check out Amie Street. It’s basically “an independent music store where all songs start free and rise in price the more they are purchased.” So, the more people who purchase a song, the more it sells for.

I’d been wanting to buy Matt Wertz‘s new album. It’s a typical $9.90 on iTunes, but I got it there for $1.45. (You have to purchase credits in units of $3, $5, etc.)

(I knew a woman named Amie Street in college. Just thought I’d throw that in there…)

  1. This is Amie Street? Awesome!

  2. $1.45 is a GREAT deal, eh?! Glad you got in while the gettin’s good!

    I wish I had read and understood the whole REC thing… I’d have already gained some extra credit by now ~ DOH!

  3. woa…i bet the amie we know must think this is really weird.

    that’s an awesome idea…i love when economics is applied this way…this is how I wish the cost of college classes was based…

    unpopular classes cost less than popular ones.

    this is very cool.

  4. Interesting thought, RC. I’m sure the professors would just love that. 🙂 Maybe their salaries could be based on the income of each class, too? Maybe we’d see a lot more “Rock to Bach” classes…
