What do you buy when you buy music?

While in isolation, I’ve picked up a few mp3s — all the stuff I’ve known about for a while but haven’t gotten around to buying. This included my first bandcamp purchase, as well as a trip through iTunes-land. I bought stuff by the Breeders, Gene Burnett, Victor Krummenacher…

It had been a while since I bought an mp3. I’ve been buying physical CDs. I’ve never gotten into the habit of playing mp3s in the car. I just don’t quite believe it’s real unless I have to deal with getting the thing in and out of the CD player while going 40 miles per hour.
