It's a holiday time of year in the US especially just now, as Thanksgiving has just passed and we're headlong into the ominously named shopping extravaganza dubbed Black Friday. Europe too was buzzing, with almost open Christmas markets and festive lighting, as I trotted around the streets of Berlin, Birmingham, and Liverpool last week.
So, in the spirit of the season....mass rampant consumerism....here are some online spots to find a few musical bargains today:
- Amazon MP3 just keeps getting more ridiculous(ly good), with 5 albums a day at $1.99 and today's offering being particularly alluring, including as they do the new Big Boi offering Sir Luscious Leftfoot, the splendid Arcade Fire newie The Suburbs, and even Weezer's Hurley...well, someone might want it for their kids. That's on top of their rotating line up of 100 albums for $5, whose November offerings you still have a few days to snag.
- If vinyl is more you thing, the good ship Insound is carrying some treasure with 20% off their top 100 vinyl sellers of the year when you buy a good armful. There are some other holiday deals combined with purchases of turntables too, so find that record lover in your life and blow their socks...well, needles....off.
