The days of MySpace are nearing its end (fortunately), so I'm looking for a website to post my personal music creations. I'm aware a few, namely PureVolume and Last.fm, but I'd like to be able to sell my work as well as let people stream it from the website.

I would like to avoid huge stores such as iTunes and Amazon, since they take a huge cut of the profit and tend to be fairly difficult to upload without a record label. Another plus would be to set my own price, instead of the "standard" $1 per song.

Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would reccommend Bandcamp :

  • Set a minimum price starting from 0$ or let people name their price
  • Let people stream your music
  • Design your page (no ads)
  • Stats...

enjoy!

CDBaby and Tunecore are two big players in helping independent artists sell their music, through both iTunes/Amazon stores (without huge cuts).

Tunecore, among them, works through iTunes, Myspace, Amazon, Spotify, eMusic, Shockhound, Zune and Nokia music stores, imvu, thumbplay and others, which is a decent selection.

Wow! It looks promising! It may be a little bit overkill for my needs, but I might submit a single sometime. –  Vortico Aug 21 '10 at 14:07
