In addition to their newly announced record label, Starbucks has long been a presence in curated CD retail. On the digital music front, Scottish-based chain Beanscene is innovating with a newly launched digital initiative that allows customers to consume new music through various mediums, including their mobile phones. According to Digital Music News:

The store, accessible at the freshly-relaunched beanscene.com,
offers a catalog of approximately one million tracks.  The songs can be
downloaded online or on a mobile device via SMS, options that allow
easy accessibility from multiple locations, including Beanscene
locations.  The launch is designed to fit into a larger music presence
by Beanscene, one that includes an in-store radio station, in-store
performances, and a distribution deal with eMusic.  According to Gordon
Richardson, founder of the chain, the download store launch is part of
a larger initiative to cultivate an inviting, in-store environment.
