i love this whole "give us something for free or we will steal it" motto that permeates the music scene.  musicians must equally . . . love it.

They are actually paid through Spotify. #blackkeysfail

oo fancy pictogram, never saw that.  so say black keys strategy pays off to the tune of 25k more people purchasing the album (probably a stretch).  using itunes as the baseline for selling albums, they profit ~$25k more for their album, record company profits ~$125k. 

not an incredibly amount of money, certainly not for the black keys, and certainly not worth the potential of bad PR.  imagine it's a trend we'll see in the industry - bands refusing to stream until profits are reasonable for everyone.

big money is made on the road anyways, right?

STHoldings labels to leave Spotify

Tracks from over 200 record labels will be removed from Spotify, Napster, Simfy, and Rdio. Labels distributed by STHoldings include Hessle Audio, Skull Disco and Mordant Music. Out of 238 labels distributed by STHoldings (which specialises in techno, grime, dubstep, and bass music), only four said they did not want their content removed from the streaming services.

STHoldings said in a statement: "As a distributor we have to do what is best for our labels. The majority of which do not want their music on such services because of the poor revenues and the detrimental affect on sales. Add to that the feeling that their music loses its specialness by its exploitation as a low value/free commodity. Quoting one of our labels "Let?s keep the music special, fuck Spotify.""

STHoldings said decision was prompted by a study conducted by NPD Group and NARM (reported by Digital Music News here) which claimed that Spotify and similar streaming services were detrimental to music sales.

Update: MusicAlly reports a response from Spotify, quoting a spokesperson as saying: ?Along with NARM, we?re confused by the way this research has been interpreted, since Spotify was not referenced anywhere in the research questionnaire and had only been live in the US for a matter of days when the study was carried out. The deck also makes absolutely no reference to Spotify and certainly does not draw any conclusions about Spotify, such as those made in the article.?

EDIT: Hyperdub is not implicated in the decision made by STHoldings. While Hyperdub is listed as being distributed by STHoldings, the company does not manage digital distribution for the label, Cargo handles the main body of digital and physical distribution for Hyperdub.

do you really think today's consumers of music care about graphs or data or information or anybody else but themselves?  they want shit for free (or basically free) or they will steal it.  the end.  they can't even stop bitching about fees on tickets.  things cost money in this world.  fucking deal with it or go live in a log cabin you build yourself and grow your own fucking food.

black keys not going to stream their new album, forcing spotify users to pirate album instead.

I love that logic - "Somebody isn't giving me their stuff for free, so I am 'forced' to steal it."

2018.  my previous post refers to streaming audio - you should look into it.

No, you posted about Peter Gabriel.  And The Director talked to me about Peter Gabriel when he was in town.  And I'm getting Google recommendations about Peter Gabriel.  And, so I ask again, what year is this?

This feels so unnatural, Peter Gabriel too.

EDIT: I have been informed via text, that there is an outside chance that the recent Phil Collins announcements have stolen Peter Gabriel's only possible chance at being in the news, and this is his reaction.
