JDG downloads now in Hi-Rez at CD Baby!

JDG music buyers at CDBaby.com now have a choice of the following file formats:

FLAC: FLAC files are “lossless,” meaning they’ve been compressed without any loss of audio information. It’s like listening to your CD, only, you know, without the CD.

MP3-320: These are the highest bit-rate MP3 files that audio decoders are required to produce, according to ISO standards. For MP3s, they sound stellar.

MP3: Our standard MP3 files are variable bit-rate with a target bit-rate of around 200kbps. These files obviously download the quickest.

Just use the store link on our menu to get your Hi-Rez downloads!

New JDG CD Distributors!

Midwest Independent Records has 3 new digital music partners: Xbox Music, Muve Music, and Bloom.fm! Xbox Music is a major overhaul of Microsoft’s Zune (one of our existing digital partners), but their facelift opens up new opportunities for our artists. All 3 of these partnerships expand our artist's music’s reach, and we’re thrilled to announce them!
