Radiohead: In Rainbows
This is yesterdays news, but still pretty exciting:

Radiohead are set for a shock release of their new album ‘In Rainbows’ on October 10.
(…)
The band surprised fans by announcing that they will release their seventh studio record next week as a download, with a limited-edition physical version of the record out before Christmas on December 2.
(…)
Plus as you can name your own price tell us how much you will play for the new Radiohead album.

So go ahead a “buy” it here.
Radiohead can do this because they have money and a fan base that supports them no matter what, no band has gotten rich from selling records online. Still, I think it’s a gutsy move.
