Is it even possible to buy music anymore? This "Music" / iTunes store... is a total fucking mystery now.

    When it’s easier to pirate, people will pirate. Cant really blame them, either.

    Streaming services work out cheaper then buying albums these days, and you end up only pirating what you can't get. Which isn't a great deal anymore.

    You can buy a CD.

    @sbiewald I bought a CD not to long ago and a friend of mine bought some LPs and CDs recently as well...

    So yea, it's definitely possible to still buy music :)

    You just have to go a little bit backwards in tech ;)

    Buy LP or CD. CD is cheaper and one can argue has better quality, but LP will become your hobby that will ask more money than your wife ;)

    Bandcamp. You get actual audio files.

    I buy CDs with the stuff I really appreciate (especially at concerts - when these were a thing of course) because I think having a hard copy is nice. I sometimes buy stuff off Bandcamp. There's Rutracker and Soulseek for the rest.

    Maybe you can send money directly to the artist to cut out the middle people. You can listen to the music for free anyway.

    "You buy music from iTunes store? You must be rich "

    In Malaysia our tax is expensive than the actual music.

    I bought a couple of CDs in my entire life. The rest were streamed through Amazon/Google Music and now Spotify

    Stopped pirating 8 years ago. A yearly subscription to a streaming service is a decent option these days

    I miss record stores. And video stores. And the rest of the world.

    Thanks for everyone’s helpful suggestions... but I do already know how to buys records and CDs. ; )

    Specifically: I wanted to buy a Com Truise album - and I wanted to buy it through Apple. But I’ll check his band camp. My guess is that Apple still sells music - but that they just don’t know how to let the user know.

    I try to avoid streaming services, when possible. I hate the fact, that they have become the very reason i abandoned Radio, and basically play more Ads than Music (I'm looking at you Spotify)

    I have a database with Music on my NAS without all that bullshit.
