DMT 115: 2012 sales, streaming Led Zep, artist strategies for 2013

Happy new year to all DMT listeners! This week I’m joined by David Riley from Good Lizard Media and Clyde Smith from Hypebot.

We kick off a new run of the podcast by looking at the music sales figures from 2012 coming from the US (Nielsen/Billboard) and the UK (BPI/Official Charts Company). Nothing hugely uplifting but things could be worse… We also talk about Spotify’s move away from downloads in Europe, Led Zeppelin considering licensing their catalogue to a streaming services (and is there a reason for any huge act not to?) and finally we end by talking about crowdfunding and the 2013 check-list for any musician or band – especially unsigned ones –  to kick-start the year and optimise the time spent online.

You’ll notice that there has been an increase in quality of the video this week BUT Skype played up big time giving us a slightly choppy audio that no amount of compressing, limiting, and EQ’ing could fix. Hope you can cope with it for this show and I promise to do my best to get a better quality audio next week.

‘Till next time.
