Try Before You Buy Music
We're a record label. But we're not evil.
We call it "try before you buy." It's the shareware model applied to music. Listen to 373 complete MP3 albums we've picked (not 30 second snippets).
Hoping to capitalize on the public's growing dislike of major record labels, Magnatune offers you something different.
If you are into independent music and want to listen to some music for free, visit their site. Although there is a way to get the mp3s for free (I'm not telling you but it's not too difficult to figure out,) the company is hoping that people will pay for the tunes. If you like what you hear you can pay for it what you feel it is worth, with half of the proceeds going to the artists.
They have various genres to tickle your fancy, from classical to electronica, so you are sure to find something that you like.
