That Poemme album is on my radar. Going to check it out on Tidal and see if it needs to go on the shopping list. What do you think of other releases on that label? They seem to have a decent following on Bandcamp.

I've streamed some of the other releases and think they're fine, but not captivating enough to buy. Let me know if you come across something on there that really strikes your fancy.

Will do.

Well spotify is the opposite with underground.

Yes, you're absolutely right.  Unlike small independent labels, major labels have equity interests in Spotify, so they make money even when (and especially when) royalties from streaming are miniscule.  Streaming is lucrative for them, and they are making it partially off the backs of independent labels.  I don't consider it ethical to support that business model, so I avoid Spotify.

Streaming is the new radio: While radio decays, streaming grows. But necessarily both the radio and the streaming service need to be financed: By advertising, by public or privat sponsorship, and of course by the loss of money. Compare a CD to a simple streaming option and you have the different price ranges and thats in the difference the loss of money. Easy to understand. This is mainstream.

Well, the underground scene with its small artists and labels always functioned in an other way.  There was and is always a commitment and devotion by the artist or label without that there would not come any support. Money has only second priority.

Todays artists are loosing their "images", more and more we become human musicians. That is a good development.

Well spotify is the opposite with underground, the problem is, streaming is still the best way for portable devices which most people use to listen to music,  so you might decide to listen to spotify or nothing at all.. just for convenience. 

I think bandcamp is best for underground stuff. I like it a lot, I just wish they are a price you could pay per month to get high quality streaming also..
Otherwise I think underground music is shrinking, it seems more and more important to listen to the same music as your friend do and keeping up with the trends, sure you can decide to be an outcast like myself, but not many people are strong enough to choose that path.

I am sad to say, I did not buy the oberheim, I wasted all the money I got from the Eventide sell on stupid crap, it is all gone now :(
I will work my ass of this summer, I will try to make it a goal to buy it then.  Still trying to find antelope converters second hand but it s very hard, they are expensive new (besides the orion tour ).
