A Band That Tried to Make Money From Spotify Have Been Banned From Spotify | NOISEY

A Band That Tried to Make Money From Spotify Have Been Banned From Spotify | NOISEY | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
We’ve tried numerous times to contact Spotify but they’ve issued a “no comment” on every occasion, taking on the strategy of “lets not give this band any attention”. Undeterred, Vulfpeck have uploaded a response track called “#Hurt”; pretty ironic when you consider that they’re still able to make money with a track that criticises the service.  

Since Spotify wouldn't talk, I called up Jack Stratton, the band’s dry witted keyboardist, de-facto spokesman, and the dude I spoke to last time, to find out more about the takedown.

 

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

Remember Vulfpeck and its "Sleepify" album? Well, it seems Spotify just kicked them out.

This band is scamming Spotify into funding their upcoming tour

This band is scamming Spotify into funding their upcoming tour | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The Ann Arbor, Michigan based band decided to tour on an entirely free circuit, and to afford hosting free gigs for fans, came up with the idea for Sleepify, an album they’re urging fans to stream on repeat while they’re asleep. If you stream the album for 8 hours, that’s 800 listens. And while at $0.005 that amounts to just $4, the idea is still incredibly clever.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Vulfpeck is running a brilliant Spotify hack.
