I caught this band Kilsy on TV last night... so I checked out their site this morning.
Admittedly, I don't know too much about indie music, so must of the stuff I listen to, if purchased, would like the pockets of music publishers, not the band. That's why I'd rather actually go to show to be supportive instead.
But that wasn't the case here, so I decided to buy some tracks.
Headed over to their MySpace page first:
Yeah, um, not so much.
Ok, how about this PayPlay thing?
No, thanks. I don't want to register or join anything... I just want to buy music.
Hmm... I wonder if they have a last.fm page.
That led me to Amazon, where the album was actually cheaper.. a 1-click buy... until....
No wonder they've only got 103 total plays on Last.fm.
Folks, you gotta make your stuff easier to get. Are you even making any money from online album sales??
Seems it would be easier to just give the stuff away and play more and bigger venues.
I wound up downloading the Amazon thing, but I don't trust it. I think its watching me.
