What’s Your Favorite Direct Digital Music Distribution Company?

Bandcamp
http://bandcamp.com/
“Discover amazing new music and directly support the artists who make it.”

BitTorrent
http://bundle.media/home-shift/#get-started
“People-powered distribution. We’re a network of filmmakers, artists and fans dedicated to sharing and supporting original voices. The idea behind Bundle is simple: the best way for people to connect is directly: over the movies, music and stories they love. There’s a different business model for every single piece of content on the web, so Bundle was built to be flexible. Use Bundle to share work in exchange for an email address to build your subscriber base. Or, use Bundle to sell your work directly to fans, at a price you set. You keep 90% of all sales revenue, and 100% of all your fan data. Sound good?”
