My current way is:

  • for some artists
  • buying used CDs from a online music CD reseller and ripping them
  • download a few from youtube via youtube-dl or something

Now a few of those from youtube are great, i’d like to buy now the album. doesn’t offer it and it is too specific/too new to get a used CD.

i could buy them from apple Itunes since it is rather cheap and it offers a DRM free download option (i think), but i’d like to avoid apple and its walled garden and bad user interface for linux people.
