The venerable Smithsonian Folkways label has opened a digital music store, Smithsonian Global Sound -- the most exciting online music happening in quite some time. The site is beautifully designed, and the Web interface is elegant and easy to navigate. The music's the thing, though, with the entirety of Folkways' vast and astonishing collection of folk music from around the world available for download at 99 cents a track. I'll be digging through the store in the coming weeks, and would welcome pointers to anything especially delightful.
