Indie Web-retail juggernaut Insound, one-stop shopping for CDs, records and zines and also home to one of the most impressive free MP3 libraries on the Web, is holding a Summer Sale in which all new customers receive 25 percent off their first purchase, effective through Labor Day. Insound asked me to make a list of my top 10 picks from the sale, which are being discounted a further 15 percent, so if you've never shopped at Insound before, you can pick up any of the selections below at a 40 percent discount.
