Are All-or-Nothing Music Crowdfunding Campaigns Superior to Flexible Funding?

One of the many widespread assumptions regarding crowdfunding is that all-or-nothing campaigns, required by Kickstarter, give those campaigns a psychological boost due to factors such as urgency when the campaign's success is in doubt.

Spotify and the Dark Arts

Hey, my name's Alex. I rap (decently) I blog (above average) and I tweet (unsatisfactorily.) Check me out. When Coldplay announced they weren’t releasing their album on Spotify a few months back, it got me thinking; I’ve been streaming music for a couple of years now and I’ve never thought about how this is affecting everyone. ...

Is Digital Payola Involved in Music Discovery and Recommendation?

By Taylor Lambert and Kevin Erickson for Future of Music Coalition. In the age of on-demand streaming, it’s common to hear people talk about music as “limitless”— something that flows forth endlessly like water.

Kid Jazz?

I fail to comprehend how an organization that boasts the jazz savvy David Cezares can repeatedly stumble in its other references to jazz.

Vinyl is Not Dead (Never Has Been)

Blue Note Records gives vinyl a boost, releasing several classic albums for the Turntable Despite the origin of the CD roughly three decades ago and the more recent digital revolution, the old fashioned “record album," spinning at a rate of 33 1/3 revolutions per minute, never went out off style.

5 Ways Major Label Music on Soundcloud Would Be Awesome

By Eliot Van Buskirk of Evolver.fm. Most of the music services available today have more or less the same music, so they distinguish themselves with third-party apps, free versions, improved designs, mixtape-style playlists, and other attractive features.
