I just signed up as a new subscriber at Ramen Music. My recommendation? Just check out their about page. They do a great job of describing what they believe in and their motivations in this effort. Artists actually getting the majority of the profits? What a concept! If you’re anything like me, you’ll be downloading issue #1’s 320 kbps zip before you know it.
If you need more convincing, they’ve done a great job on their web design and every issue’s cover intends to represent the work of an artist who deserves your attention. There is also a story, real narrative about each track. I love it already and I haven’t even heard the first track yet. In all honesty, I feel a bit silly for feeling like a kid on Christmas morning, but this feels like what I’ve been wanting from music for a while now. It’s intimate … real.
Now if you’ll please excuse me, my download is done :)
