Soundsupply is a recently launched website that bundles together a bunch of digital albums - all for one price. Their first batch are now available for $15. Check out a video explaining the launch in the replies. Definitely an interesting new model, and a company I'll be keeping an eye on.
1. Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin "Let It Sway" (Polyvinyl)
2. Aficionado "Self-titled" (No Sleep Records)
3. Sister Suvi "Now I Am Champion" LP (members of tUnE-YaRds, Islands)
4. Andrew Dost (of Fun.) "Columbus" (Paper & Plastik)
5. Colour Revolt "The Cradle" (Dualtone)
6. Into It. Over It. "PROPER" (No Sleep Records)
7. Sophie Madeleine "The Rhythm You Started" (Xtra Mile, UK)
8. All Get Out "The Season" (Favorite Gentlemen)
9. Harrison Hudson "American Thunder" (Favorite Gentlemen)
10. Coconut Records "Davy" (Jason Schwartzman, Young Baby Records)
11. Cut Teeth "Televandalism EP"
i wish it wasn't for digital albums... i'd rather have digital/CD/vinyl options, but it's a cool idea anyways!
I think the point is that it might get people to buy digital who otherwise only buy physical music, or don't pay at all. I usually don't buy digital unless it's a digital only release, but this is like a little over a dollar per album which changes everything
All Get Out has been promoting this on their facebook for a few days and it looks awesome. I already love half of the albums but the other half sound great. I didn't realize Merrill Garbus was involved in anything prior to tUnE-yArDs. I'm definitely checking that out.
I also thought it was funny that the Andrew Dost clip was nearly all Nate Ruess and no Andrew.
All music in the bundle is in MP3 format encoded at 256kbps or higher, which means they sound good, don't take up much space and will play on virtually every device that plays music. There is no DRM on any of the tracks. They are embedded with nice album art and track info.
