personal soundtracks

I found it immensely irritating that I cannot buy mp3s for pretty much any artist signed to a major label without giving a massive cut to one of three behemoth companies; at least with indies there is a 75% chance I can buy from bandcamp, cdbaby, or their own website so they actually get most of the money, but instead the choices are itunes, google play, or amazon music, all of which have horrible download protocols and while google makes the most sense for my personal purposes (S works there) they are often missing random stuff.

Also, I'm not entirely sure what to make of the fact that almost all the new-to-me bands I'm into right now are very ... late teens/early 20s? Though I guess they mostly fall into dream pop-influenced sound and all have rude lyrics. (Hey Violet, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish) I guess I just need attitude right now.
