New Streaming Service For Underground Music Launches

WASHINGTON, DC, April 29th, 2013 — UndergroundMusic.fm wants to make underground music mainstream. The startup has officially launched a new Internet service that provides a simple way to play and share underground music.

“It sounds paradoxical because it’s never been possible before,” says co-founder Max Acchione. “The underground has always been the source of musical innovation: blues, jazz, rock, punk, hip-hop, electronic, etc., and being inside it as it happens is exciting. It’s hard to experience because it’s so spread out and recording and distribution have been expensive. That’s why we have a mainstream in the first place. But today, the underground is thriving with affordable recording technology and it can be directly accessed through the Internet on ubiquitous devices.”

To Stream or Not to Stream: Pro and Cons

Lady Ga Ga had over a million spins on Spotify and was paid a whopping $167.00. So who does streaming benefit? It sure isn’t the artists who make the music. Spotify claims it’s loosing money. Since the inception of streams and subscription services, labels and artists have watched their digital income plummet into the toilet. Anyone know a good plumber to retrieve all those “would have been” downloads?

Is music streaming less threatened by piracy?

Hi,

This is rather a starting point for a debate than a post of knowledge.

I was wondering: There is a vast amount of piracy sites to download music and movies. There is also a vast amount of illegal movie streaming sites.

Why is there (almost) no illegal music streaming site? The only one coming to my mind is grooveshark but that’s basically it.
