Don't much care for Yorke, but he's spot on with this. I've had over 1000 plays on one of my tunes and recieved about a quarter for it before pulling it off there and switching to Bandcamp only.

It's sad, as it's so convenient for users to find anything we want, but as an artist, it's a massive ripoff.

I'm not sure; I go through a service (TuneCore) that caters to very small bands and labels putting them on online distribution sites like Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc. If I was going through IODA (the Orchard) that services bigger indie labels and acts, I'd get a bit more. Major labels get way more. I'm pretty sure at that level, they negotiate separately on a per-artist basis and the artists are at least a little bit reimbursed.

Though they owe their major labels for life, so it's not very likely that they are flush with cash off a million Spotify streams either.

You can still use it for free, only you'll have to listen to ads, they average one every four songs Id say.

i'm only 20 haha. Musics in hibernation till cowells brought to justice.

Either that or a band of northerners decide to capture the countries imagination again. I've had many conversations about this but some probably aren't suitable for the internet. I just think musics feminine now. Women listen to it because they're women. Men listen to it so they can fuck said women. Like mumford and sons are one of britains biggest bands now. Thats just not good enough. I like what miles kane is doing at the minute

You know, shit music has always been more popular than good music? Save for the odd occasions. Have a flick through the chart toppers of the 60's and 70's  its mainly 99% shit and about in line with the average now. Engelbert Humperdinck kept "Strawberry Fields" off number one, just think about that for a moment. Politically incorrect comedians were regular chart toppers with novelty hits, but they tend not to mention that in those BBC4 documentaries. Selective memory and nostalgia has had a major effect in skewing what has always been the popular music consensus, it has mainly been rubbish. Just like now.

that's a great notion.

I despise Thom Yorke, even if yes spotify does seem to take the piss with artist payments like that.

I dislike the way he's taken music so far from visceral, primal music into 'hmm, I'm thinking about this music, it's all intellectual and that'. Radiohead's music mainly sounds like none of them have ever got laid in their lives. Obviously they must have, but I bloody hope they didn't have 'Idioteque' on at the time else it would have been a jerky horrible thing. The bad-eyed one must fuck in 11/4 time or something cringe-inducing like that.

Personally I don't use Spotify as it has fuck all Dylan on it, and, er, get this, I actually BUY my records, on VINYL, and the old ones I had on CD, I put on a hard drive...woah. It's like steam power or something.

Its good for sourcing new releases, Its what I use it for, makes browsing music much easier than flaying about looking for good stuff in some meandering mammoth Youtube session, the related artist function is very handy. Vinyl is cooler but you can have both you know?

hoping someone can help,

ive set up a free spotify account and have done a playlist which is all great, if i sync my phone with my laptop obviously the playlists will be on my phone, i plan to listen to this in the car on the way to and from work everyday which is a 2 hour round trip,

so my question is, will the songs be downloaded to my phone?

i only have a 1gb data allowance and im pretty sure i would eat well into this pretty quickly if i was streaming them everyday, so the whole thing would be a waste of time for me

cheers

With a free account your playlists sync across registered devices and then each device will stream the playlist when requested.  With a premium account you can download the playlist and play it from local storage, obviously you then no longer have to stream it.
