Rumor: DRM-free iTunes this week

Gizmodo is reporting that DRM-free tracks from EMI could be hitting the virtual shelves this week. This got me excited because I had been looking forward to an easy way to actually pay for music online without having all sorts of restrictions on what I do with this music when I get it. I started to wonder however, if there were any artists on EMI that I actually care about. I managed to find a list and there are quite a few artists that I had been listening to:

  • Lily Allen
  • The Beastie Boys
  • Blur
  • Depeche Mode
  • Duran Duran
  • Fischerspooner
  • Goldfrapp
  • Kelis
  • Lenny Kravitz
  • The Magic Numbers
  • OK Go
  • Liz Phair
  • Iggy Pop
  • Moby

Most of these are artists that I had been listening to for a while, or that I picked up by listening to Pig Radio, which I can not recommend highly enough if you like Indie Rock, Techno and Electro Pop. The only exception is Lily Allen, who I had heard on Pig Radio, but didn’t really become interested in until Karl. played a few of her tracks over some EVE one afternoon.
