Digitally clear Dischord

Dischord, the Fugazi-founded punk label, has just gone digital, opening an online store which offers pretty much the label's entire back catalogue in a mix of purchasing options:

This Dischord "digital" site offers a unique hybrid of the direct sale and subscription based download services (as well as the usual CDs, LPs, DVDs, etc). Customers have the option to download entire albums for a set price (usually $7), purchase Digital Credits (15 credits for $10) that can be used to download individual songs, or receive a free album download with the purchase of a 12" vinyl LP from our store.

There are plans to bring rarities to market, too, and an online streaming player. Punks not analogue.
