ITunes and the coming Burnlounge storm

Being stuck in the digital void that is Hong Kong, I can't access the iTunes store, so I have to find other places to shop for music.

My destination for now is insound. Let me count the ways.

They do the great thing of recommending music to you when you select what you like for your shopping cart.

The music selection is mostly indie or fringe mainstream electronic, hip-funk and elcectica that gets your panties itchy.

They also run a "radio" program that is actually a listing of streaming songs of the most popular and then also the most marginal content available on the site. I have made more than a few choices based on random selections of the radio listings.

You can also watch videos from a few bands. This is the destination of music.

Selective channeling of music for consumer experimenting and choosing.

They will soon have a bigger challenger. The under-the-radar but popular burnlounge is going to launch a free version of its "concentric retailing" software in April.
