My latest release is out on The Pirate Bay and I'm OK with it | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The making of these compilations, with the aim to share them for free, appears to be more meaningful now than ever. When the old established music industry is desperately trying to prevent its empire from collapsing, blaming the wrong people for its decline, releasing free music is more than a friendly giveaway, it's a deliberate ethical move. Here's our choice: we either let the masses consider music as any industrial goods, or we try to remember there is more in art & music and see beyond copyrights and profit. Music is about sharing feelings, emotions, decibels. And this should remain priceless. Does this mean music makers should not fulfill their piggybanks ? Of course not, it's time we all create a new economical system working rather for the best interest of musicians than for industrial holdings.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Actually, I posted it up there myself.

PledgeMusic, CD Baby, and CD Baby-affiliate Disc Makers all provide great tools for independent musicians (as well as larger acts). It makes complete sense that these companies have now banded together in a partnership

Pierre Priot's insight:

Consolidation. Or how to build up a 360 degree offer for indie uprising acts.

10 Great & Influential Indie Record Labels (Part II) « Think Like a Label

10 Great & Influential Indie Record Labels (Part II) « Think Like a Label | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

This is the second installment of the 10 Great & Influential Indie Record Labels list that you’ve all been waiting for. Again, I acknowledge the bias of my own perspective and choice of music in forming this list, but I guarantee you each of these bands are very influential, each in their own respect. This list was put together to serve as a learning tool for the progression of labels and how they choose to behave and interact with their community, and conduct their business. There is certainly an evolution going on, and the independency aesthetic seems to be taking precedence; it is up to us to further shape the future of the industry– our industry.
