Resources: Music Download Sites

Here's a list of download sites that carry new music in lossless quality for those who still like to purchase albums.


Bandcamp is my favorite download site by a long shot because—"Bandcamp makes it easy for fans to directly connect with and support the artists they love. We treat music as art, not content, and we tie the success of our business to the success of the artists who we serve".

You pay the same for lossy and lossless downloads on Bandcamp so remember when buying music, always pick the lossless version. And Bandcamp's app is a winner.
