The L.A.-based indie record label Stones Throw has launched its own “Digital Discography,” which offers subscribers every new release from the label via email for $10 a month. This new artist-supporting business model for the digital music industry is based on consumer trust in a label.

Members will also have access to music from the catalog, advance material and exclusive tracks, mixes and sessions, all for just $10 a month.
