Bleep!

The first dig­i­tal music down­load ser­vice that gets it right, in my opin­ion, is Warp Records Bleep.

I dis­cov­ered it through Chris Heatcote’s blog (thanks Chris) and decid­ed to give it a go. Sign­ing up is pain­less, brows­ing through the music works rea­son­ably well (although they could take a few hints from ser­vices like Odeo when it comes to inter­face design) and buy­ing an album is easy, you can even use Pay­Pal, so no look­ing around for your cred­it card. Best of all is the fact that the files are plain mp3s with­out DRM. Love­ly. Give them a try!
