iTunes Music Store Canada

We’re coming up on the second month anniversary of the Canadian iTMS opening and I am still rather disappointed with the selection. There is a ton of music missing that exists on the US or UK stores.

In just a random search: No New Pornographers, the Bleed American album by Jimmy Eat World is missing (although thier others are there), no Gary Numan, and no JoyDrop. I was hoping that iTMS would enable the long tail. Dissapointing.

I’m assuming that there are a bunch of labels that haven’t cleared their music for iTMSCA yet. I was hoping things would get better in January. Sigh, I guess patience is not my strong suite…
