I ran across an artist who uses this service to ensure that their music gets heard by as many people as possible by making sure it's available on all the streaming services, etc. It's affordable (20USD per year for unlimited albums) and also ensures you get paid for when your music is used/licensed: https://distrokid.com/

Thought this might be of interest/useful for budding musicians here or established ones who don't want the headache of doing all this yourself.
Knew of the "Richard's Haircut" remix and all, but this tidbit was news to me:
RDJ certainly was hit up often for remixes and collaborations, can't help but wonder if that's partly why he ramped up his eccentric reputation in interviews.
I've been meaning to make a topic to let all you British folks know that Plaid is featured on this month's issue (December 2019) of Computer Music magazine! I saw they retweeted the news on Twitter and scrambled to an ol British Newsstand website I used to buy the sadly defunct SpongeBob Magazine years back, Newsstand.co.uk. Very useful site if you're not living in the U.K and interested in seeing Plaid talk for a bit and show how they make Los with specific software, among a couple other features.
The magazine also shows a link to an awesome video with making Los too if you can't buy the magazine.
My copy came today and I peeked a bit through it. Will give it a full read later but I saw some news that caught my eye. Ed mentions a NEW EP coming by the end of November or so!!! I'm fuckin hyped, not only do we get Peel Session 2 but this too! Andy mentions it being "more pure dancey material".
I wish I can scan the 12-page feature but I sadly don't own a scanner and taking pictures on my sister's phones will take ages. XP
