With the introduction of a new pricing scheme over at iTunes today (now $1.29 for popular songs, $.99, and $.69 songs) I thought it was worth mentioning the new lala.com.  For just .79 or .89 cents you can BUY DRM-free music (256-Kbps bit rate mp3), that’s about .40 cents less expensive the Apple iTunes.  In addition to that you can stream your music for free wherever you are with just a simple internet connection and a web browser, no need to carry your music collection around with you.

Lal a matches the songs on your computer to our catalog, and adds them for free to your online collection. Quick and easy.
Buy new music
Add new music to your online collection as you go. Get the web song (unlimited online plays) for 10 cents, or the MP3 download for 79 cents more.

Top 3 features that lala.com brings to the table that other music giants don’t have.

  • Feature #1: Full previews.  Brilliant idea.  Why NOT let the people listen before they buy?
  • Feature #2: Web songs.  Think of it as licensing rights to only listen to your music online.  With the likes of Last.FM and Pandora being huge among music fans, why NOT give the people an incentive to play the music THEY want to stream to their headsets.  Another brilliant idea.
  • Feature #3: Online Audio Storage & Playback.  Give the people the right to stream music and play music they already own.  Another great idea.  Let’s just hope by letting people do this for free, that in turn people will buy some music from them to support all this bandwidth!
