Bleep.com review

99p per track

Manufacturer: Bleep

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

Bleep is a music download site that specialises in electronic and indie music.

Bleep is a music download site that specialises in electronic and indie music.

At 99p apiece, individual tracks are priced a little higher than at the some other site, but albums are reasonable on Bleep, at £6.99. You can also preview entire songs, rather than 30-second clips, and Bleep has some cool exclusive content.

One artist, for instance, included a comic book with his album that you can view as you listen.

Tracks added to Bleep.com since January 2006 can be downloaded at 320Kbps. Those added prior to this date are available with VBR encoding. Bleep claims these files are still of a very high quality and indistinguishable from 320Kpbs MP3s.
