Prosthetic Records leaves Spotify
2011-09-20 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 13 Comments
Metal label Prosthetic Records has become the third major independent operator to withdraw its catalogue from Spotify's on-demand streaming service.

Prosthetic - home to acts like Lamb of God, All That Remains and Kylesa - follows Century Media and Metal Blade in questioning the benefits of the service.

Label head E.J. Johantgen told LA Weekly that "there [does] not appear to be an upside" and that income from Spotify comes in "fractions of pennies."

He added: "I would like to see what their projected ad revenue would be. Then we could really determine if their rates are fair."

Its just how it goes. Eventually a better managed service will come out, that small labels will want to be on. and thats the one that will succeed.

I use Spotify, but I also loathe the way it works. Their treatment of advertisements is just ridiculous (even if you turn down your computer a lot, not necessarily turn it off, they pause the ad). I can't wait for them to be outdone.

Spotify just seems like a lazy legal alternative to downloading your music for free. Google Music Beta allows you to upload your entire music catalog (up to 20,000 songs) to the cloud for instant streaming wherever you are. It's currently a free, invite only service.

.00013 cents a song (or whatever it is) is better than $0 for whole albums.

I use spotify just out of convenience, because when I get a rec here or through last.fm (or anywhere else), I can just open my phone and add it to the playlist. So far there's very little that I haven't found, but if the only thing left in a few more months is the major label shit then what's the point?
