    1. Where to get music in a downloadable format (other than itunes) ?

      So currently I get most of my music from soundtracks ripped from games and from Bandicamp. However, quite a few artists that go through traditional publishers are not on Bandicamp. Now, while I...

      So currently I get most of my music from soundtracks ripped from games and from Bandicamp. However, quite a few artists that go through traditional publishers are not on Bandicamp.

      Now, while I could go through the hassle of installing iTunes on Linux through WINE, I dont want to because:

      • WINE can be a hassle, especially if the app does some strange things.
      • Id rather not support apple in any way if I can

      So, are there any major platforms that allow downloading .mp3 or better yet, .flac files, especially for artists going through bigger publishers?

    4. Last call for the Tildes best music of 2020 roundup

      The first roundup thread is right here. This is the last thread before I make the playlists. If you've got any 2020 albums to share that didn't end up in the last roundup, please share them here...

      The first roundup thread is right here.

      This is the last thread before I make the playlists. If you've got any 2020 albums to share that didn't end up in the last roundup, please share them here in the new thread. Any album you like enough to spin repeatedly or buy released in 2020 should make this list. We're not collecting enough votes to matter on the albums, so don't worry about sharing multiple albums in a single comment this time. Plug as many as you like.

      Since we're past Jan 1st, all the other music publications have their bestofs out there, and many forums and websites have long threads with people sharing their favorite records. I'd also appreciate links to any of those lists or threads you've found where people are sharing their favorite albums. Just leave them in the comments and don't worry if it gets messy, I'm quite used to it. :)

      I'll let this float for a week to collect any late submissions and then build the final list with links for easy listening.

      The final set will look something like this.
