Who Puts the Super in the Sound?

By Anja Buechele, 10 April 2001

If you are looking for elitist/selective mail order and innovative music sites on the Net (yes! We want standards!) whose reviews are critical and well written, whose prices are affordable and whose concerns extend beyond the gratification of geekish demands for immediacy – here are four: has a lot of otherwise unavailable material at low prices; hosts an excellent, enlightening selection of records and eyebrow-raising reviews (“This is fucking great! This is fucking great! This is fucking great!” etc.. on the first Die Kreuzen LP); my personal favourite, features excellent audio and visual streams plus lots of links to critical, political pages. is the understated site of the hausmusik, payola and kollaps labels.
