We currently offer digital versions of many of our artists' albums. If you wish to purchase individual tracks, please visit one of several digital retailers on the internet. Our digital albums are packaged as ZIP folders, which require freely available software to unpackage. They will work on computers running Windows (Windows 98 or later), Mac (OS9 or later) or Linux, as well as on many portable audio devices.
We offer digital albums in two formats: MP3 files, or FLAC (free lossless audio codec) files. The MP3s are high quality files (320kbps), will sound excellent on computers or portable players, and are relatively quick to download, with file sizes generally ranging from 4MB to 12MB per song. The FLACs are lossless audio files that preserve the quality of the original material, with file sizes ranging from 10MB to 35MB per song. You need special software to play FLAC files, and they are currently not supported by iTunes (visit www.flac.org for more information).
If you purchased a digital album (MP3 or FLAC), access your downloads here.
If you purchased an album on vinyl or cassette which comes with free MP3s, you can download them here.
Unlike downloading music from peer-to-peer networks, purchasing digital albums from the Barsuk shop is perfectly legal, and helps to support our bands.
Digital albums will be available to download for up to 30 days after the purchase date. You can download up to 2 copies of the digital album to your computer (or other digital storage device). Please respect the rights of the artist and do not distribute or transfer any digital album to others.
Our bands grant us rights to sell digital albums to specific territories of the world, and we are restricted from selling outside of these areas. If, during the checkout process, you are instructed to remove a digital album from your shopping cart, we apologize for the inconvenience, and recommend that you visit another digital retailer that has rights to sell in your territory.
We will do our best to help you resolve any issues you might have while downloading our digital albums. We cannot be responsible for problems with your computer or any software used to play these albums.
