I’m waiting for the Kim Gordon era, myself.
I bet Collision Course would fare better than Best of Both Worlds and Unfinished Business.
So if Spotify isn’t the current version of the record store, maybe it’s closer to being the current version of radio. When a song is played on radio, the artist receives NO performance royalty. So any payout is better than nothing, right?
Now, this is obviously not a perfect comparison, as radio doesn’t play songs on demand, but keep in mind that when you bought an album in the pre-digital age, the artist got a lump sum and that was it. With Spotify, the artist receives a royalty for every play for years to come. That’s what they call the long tail. Internet radio doesn’t pay much now, but as it scales, more subscribers + more plays = more royalties.
Everyone needs to keep in mind that this is still a very new market that is far from mature. The hope is that this maturity will help everyone from streaming platforms, to labels, to artists.
Not sure who wrote that Village Voice article, but I have a feeling that kid is gonna go places.
Just cuz I’m straight, doesn’t mean I don’t blow dudes.
Because Colombia is where the original zero calorie Coke comes from?
That Robert Altman?
Ha. I thought that said “Dan Snaith Wants To Teach You Guitar.”
So, if I’m reading number 4 correctly, does that mean that the rights are owned by Ginn and Rollins?
I still ride for the Slim Shady LP. For me the biggest problem with Em is that what made him so urgent, so amazing was his hunger, and after he blew up and became a TRL staple, he kinda lost that intensity.
Call me old fashioned, but any (rock-type) band playing live needs a real drummer, even if there is a backing track.
How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?
Reflektor DOES mention PRISM.
For real. This is undoubtedly going to be one of the best fines of 2013.
Ooh. An Eye Remix, even. Cool.
It’s just a reflektor.
…and by “rap establishment,” you mean the Illuminati, right?
