As One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer or whatever it's called don't do it for me, I looked at American music.

If you try to buy MP3s from rather than it won't let you. You can buy CDs though. Sometimes buying them from is cheaper than buying imports from even with shipping.

If you set up account with and make sure you sign in with that email address and password, you can choose billing in sterling on which avoids bank charges.

Some (note some) other American websites will allow you to download MP3s with a foreign debit card and with the rate of exchange I've picked up new albums for under £3.
