The indies have arrived at iTunes! Matador Records just licensed much of its extensive back catalog, as well as new releases, to the Apple iTunes music store. Matador planted a flag for Spain by saying they're the first indie to ink a deal with Apple. Sail on, fearless digital music adventurers!
Matador also said that in the months ahead, it hopes to make exclusive material available via iTunes, such as previews from forthcoming studio albums, outtakes, live tracks, and demo versions.
Just checked... they've already got 3 full Belle & Sebastian albums up, the recent Interpol release, and some Guided By Voices. Say goodbye to all of my disposable income. I can't look at it any more... I just can't.
