My current way is:

  • for some artists
  • buying used CDs from a online music CD reseller and ripping them
  • download a few from youtube via youtube-dl or something

Now a few of those from youtube are great, i’d like to buy now the album. doesn’t offer it and it is too specific/too new to get a used CD.

i could buy them from apple Itunes since it is rather cheap and it offers a DRM free download option (i think), but i’d like to avoid apple and its walled garden and bad user interface for linux people.


Bandcamp almost exclusively. HD tracks and Bleep for bands not able to release elsewhere.
