Sub Pop starts MP3 sales

Indie record label Sub Pop, home to artists like Patton Oswalt, Iron & Wine and The Postal Service, has begun selling select albums in MP3 format. As of press time over 200 albums were online; many of these are already available on other online stores, but Sub Pop is charging $9.90 per release, making them 9 cents cheaper than the average iTunes cost. The files are also in a 192kbps, DRM-free format, meaning that they can be used with any software or media player.

The greatest advantage of the service in the future may come from the re-release of previously out-of-print records, which will likely remain Sub Pop-exclusive downloads. A present restriction, however, is the inability to buy tracks individually, forcing shoppers to purchase whole albums at a time. [via Crave]
