I was apparently DJing in the douchiest club in Chicago last night... at first I though it was spam, but no bot could create such douchbag profiles.

Those profiles are so money...  ::)

My peeve is with labels that physically release something only on vinyl (because sound, man) and digitally only in MP3 or iTunes (because BULLSHIT, man).

Compact Discs are dead. 

I guess I wasn't clear. Some labels offer downloads of their vinyl releases only in MP3 or iTunes, both of which are lossy formats that are inferior to CD. If they really cared about sound and not just looking cool, they would offer downloads in lossless formats, e.g. WAV, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, BWF. Even better, they would offer downloads in higher digital resolutions than CD.

Ok that makes sense.  I guess the problem is that most people today listen to music on a shitty phone with shitty ear buds and they don't really care about sound quality.

Nigel Godrich, Four Tet and Thom Yorke are not streaming service fans. http://blbrd.co/1bBf0tU Wondering if lesser known, younger bands will follow suit.

A counterpoint on the streaming services issue

From Kudos Distribution, a leading distributor of UK indie labels.  Streaming is the "2nd largest income source for our labels."

I saw you tweet that a bit ago.
 There was also this from Damon Krukowski of Damon and Naomi/Galaxie 500. In summation, he thinks that all streams should be completely free while owning the music itself would still come at a price. Essentially the Bandcamp model.

There is no one size fits all approach, as even some of Kudos's labels as use bandcamp in addition to more traditional distribution.

i think musicians should go back to selling their music out of the back of vehicles.  you know, like music making ice cream mans.  like musical digestive food vendor trucks .  it could be the new rage.  the new hipster.  the new new.  roaming vans selling hard to find, exclusive songs, sometimes with the very fucking band on the truck recording the damn song right there and then spitting it out the side like a japanese ticket restaurant.

yeah.  take that.

great idea, but the word exclusives just turns into people gouging others on ebay...

Oh hey. There's a link to my Storify thing in The New Yorker. That internet is a weird place sometimes. http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/sashafrerejones/2013/07/spotify-boycott-new-artists-music-business-model.html
