eMusic’s agreements with Merge Records and the entire Beggars Group (4AD, Matador, Rough Trade, XL, Beggars Banquet, Mantra, Too Pure, Twisted Nerve, True Panther, Young Turks) expire on November 18th. All the music goes away, pending a renegotiation. I’ve had to adjust my planned downloads a bit, so as not to miss out on some stellar music. I’m still posting links, but I’m not sure if they’ll still be good after the 18th. I hope these great labels will return to eMusic one day.
