If I were you I'd stick with free song downloads and selling the physical 
Why would I want to pay money to download an audio file from your site 
when I
can get ten gazillion of them for free from MP3.com?  "Because our songs 
better" isn't enough incentive for me.  Bonus GIF downloads of psychedelic

most of their songs, and maybe one or two full-length songs as freebies.
What's wrong with that?
