Music Ally Podcast #24 – Twitter, Spotify, Grooveshark, Alibaba and more


Music Ally Podcast ImageIn the latest Music Ally podcast, Eamonn Forde calls Stuart Dredge on Skype even though he’s in the next room. Hopefully this will mean they no longer sound like they are trapped inside an echo chamber in Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s studio. Among the topics they discuss are: Twitter’s new music app and why it’s very nice but seems to be lacking something by being a standalone app and experience; if anyone in the music business will feel sorry for Grooveshark complaining about how little money it has and why the tech bloggers need to look behind the story and not just see its new Broadcast service as a total win; how Rough Trade is rewarding its loyal customers with free downloads of everything they buy; how Spotify managed to get a Daft Punk story all over the media without giving away any numbers and if we will soon see the age of chequebook streaming exclusives; and finally what Aibaba in China is doing with online retail and music – which includes an interesting diversion into the psychology of music in the wine section of supermarkets that quickly descends into a series of terrible horse burger “jokes”.
