PSA: You should get all your music on Bandcamp if possible. High-quality, DRM-free downloads, where a purchase is actually a purchase, and in unless something is truly off (actual scam), your money is going to reach the artist more or less directly.

There's also other sites/services with similar ideas, check out for example

Bandcamp is the oldest, largest and most well-developed however. At least in my knowledge.

@pettter @rgggn agreed, but I do have a question about record labels on Bandcamp: when it's the label rather than the artist managing the store, is this still true?

@eldang @rgggn That depends on the label, I think. It's generally harder to fudge bandcamp numbers than streaming, I think.
