Music Ally Podcast #34 – Spotify, Atoms For Peace, Muve Music and more


The Music Ally podcast is a mere two days late but this was intentional (hem, hem) so that we could cover all the stories in the busiest week for digital music news that Stuart Dredge and Eamonn Forde can ever remember. First off, we finally resolve the whole Spotify/Atoms For Peace spat so that no one needs to ever write about this again, thanks. It’s a one-word solution, too: Cadillacs. We also look at two concurrent studies into streaming and its effect on piracy (in Norway and the Netherlands) but suggest we need to see more acts making their total income public so we can make sense of the wider picture. We then speculate about what will happen to Muve Music if AT&T buys it before trying to make sense of what it is Tay Allyn is doing with the ‘Mass Text’ video (it could be a spoof, it could be a viral, it could be the next dubstep). Bonus thought leadership this week involves building a replica of planet Earth so we can make proper sense of what happens in two distinct situations where an act either puts their music on a streaming service (Planet A) or keeps it off a streaming service (Planet B).
