Streambait Pop
Even someone like Matt, who wholeheartedly loves Spotify-pop, agrees that it’s an environment that devalues music: “It’s disposable AF. It’s too disposable. New Music Friday has seventy-plus songs every week. Who is actually supposed to hang on to any of those songs? There’s too much!” This is a symptom of the attention-driven platform economy as well: the churning stomach of the content machine constantly demands new stuff. In such an economy, music that doesn’t take off is dropped once it has outlived its usefulness—either as a brand prop or as playlist-filler.

Should Spotify Change The Way It Pays Artists?
Midia Research founder Mark Mulligan, who first used the phrase “user-centric licensing” back in 2015, tells me, “User-centric licensing clearly has a lot of strong attributes, but its actual impact on distribution of artist income is less obvious. Yet it is in many respects fairer [than the pro rata system], and if we want fairness toward artists, which most people do, you can’t pick and choose which type of fairness you prefer.” Spotify rival Deezer has been looking closely at a shift to user-centric licensing for more than a year, while high-level whispers suggest that Amazon is now also investigating its potential impact on services like Amazon Music Unlimited.

There's "nothing social anymore about Spotify," say Users
The net effect of fewer social features is that new music on Spotify is less viral, unless perhaps it gets placed on an official Spotify playlist. That is a major label game, say these Redditors, and many in the indie community agree. Some users also believe that the same major labels forced Spotify to remove social features specifically to limit music discovery. "I firmly believe that Spotify removed social stuff due to pressure from the major labels that currently allow them to use their music," writes Barncore. " No more messaging, no more notifications, etc etc, basically no way for users to make things go viral. The labels have the influence/power to make things viral."

Spotify's Most Streamed Artists, Tracks 2018 Are All Male and It Has Only Itself To Blame
An analysis of top Spotify playlists earlier this year by Liz Pelly of The Baffler included Today’s Top Hits, New Music Friday, Rock This, Rap Caviar, Hot Country, ¡Viva Latino! and more. The results of her experiment: "I found Spotify’s most popular and visible playlists to be staggeringly male-dominated. Not only this, I approached the project by listening from a brand new account in order to confirm that gender bias would be reproduced by way of algorithmic recommendations - that when a user listens to mostly male-dominated playlists, what is produced are yet more male-dominated playlists. Indeed, the sexist music industry status quo is upheld widely by Spotify, even as the platform exploits the woke optics of playlists like Feminist Friday and advertising schemes like the Smirnoff Equalizer to further benefit its brand recognition and bottom line."

Cold Discovery — Real Life
"In Understanding Media, Marshall McLuhan argues that every medium contains another pre-existing medium as its content: Speech is the content of writing, while writing is the content of print. Print, along with music and video, has become the content of another medium, the internet and its digital formats. Movies and television, in the aggregate, have become the content of Netflix, so when we watch video on Netflix, we are watching “movies and television” at a less differentiated level of abstraction."
