some news about bandcamp and streaming 

Everything is Terrific: The Bandcamp 2016 Year in Review
https://daily.bandca...year-in-review/

 

 

most interesting parts:

Bandcamp’s business was up in 2016. Digital album sales grew 20%, tracks 23%, and merch 34%. Growth in physical sales was led by vinyl, which was up 48%, and further boosted by CDs (up 14%) and cassettes (up 58%)

 

....

 

The record business overall did not fare as well. According to Nielsen, it grew 3% in the U.S. in 2016, while sales of digital albums fell 20%, tracks were down 25%, and physical albums dropped 14%. These declines are not at all surprising given the industry-wide push toward subscription music rental offerings, and indeed as the year came to a close, those services reached a combined 100 million paying subscribers.

 

....

 

As more people subscribe to music rental services, the already paltry rates paid to artists are going down (and no, artists don’t necessarily make it up in volume). But it’s not only artists who are struggling.

That's a great read, and very interesting for anybody interested more in the business-side of things. I love Bandcamp and everything they do and stand for.
