To stand out among all the other online music vendors out there, Amie Street goes against the traditional digital music store model and bases its song and album prices on popularity. All songs begin as either very cheap or free, and the prices increase to a maximum of 98 cents as more and more people download them. While you can find music by a few semi-well-known acts like Vampire Weekend and MSTRKRFT, the majority of Amie Street’s music is independent or underground in nature. This gives you the opportunity to discover new and upcoming artists, potentially for free, if they haven’t made it big yet. Amie Street even gives you the chance to recommend music to others and earn free downloads as that music increases in price.
