Other Music is a music retail store that sells CDs and records through their website as well as a brick-and-mortar store in Manhattan. It specializes in the sale of closely curated underground, rare and experimental music.
In January 2007, Other Music announced that it plans to begin selling high-quality MP3 files for download without using any type of digital rights management. This announcement follows similar moves made by other small online music retailers, including United Kingdom-based Rough Trade, New York-based Insound and New York-based Anthology Recordings. The announcement also coincided with the closing of Tower Records' Lower Manhattan location. According to Other Music co-owner Josh Madell, this closing signifies the growing hardship of selling music out of a physical store, especially considering his store's location just across the street from Tower.
