Soundsupply is one of the newer entries in the music industry’s fight against piracy and the public’s growing apathy towards purchasing music digitally. The concept is simple: for a 10 day window, you can purchase a bundle of 10 digital albums that the people at Soundsupply pick for a “drop” for fifteen dollars. After those 10 days the deal is gone, and the Soundsupply store is inactive until the next drop.
This service allows users to get 10 recent releases for just $1.50 a record and simultaneously serves as a vehicle for discovering new music considering the grab-bag nature of the purchase. 3 drops have happened so far and have received significant attention. The fourth drop has just been announced, and looks promising: popular records by La Dispute, Kevin Devine, and Mansions top the list while the other albums highlight up-and-comers in the scene. Here’s a preview of all of the releases provided by Soundsupply.
