Fight the Power! How You Can Fight Against Pandora's Artist Rates...
Jun 18, 2013 4:07pm | The Daily Swarm
If you’re a musician who’s ever gotten a check for $0.03 from Pandora, you already know that the situation is dire. It’s not just you, but every artist who is bare knuckle-battling Pandora for a better rate for their music. This is the last thing Pandora wants to do; they even have a lobbying group to assure that this will never happy. But don’t lose hope – there are ways to fight back. Via Hypebot:
Pandora needs two copyrights to play a song on Pandora.
1) The Recording: (For example, Arista Records hired Whitney Houston to sing the song “I Will Always Love You”. When they are done, the recording of that song is owned by Arista Records.)
2) The “Composition”: (aka the lyrics and melody). (For example, Dolly Parton wrote the song “I Will Always Love You” that Whitney Houston sang.)

Cheap Time on tour w/ Social Distortion, playing Pianos w/ Shockwave Riderz (ex-Modey Lemon), who also play w/ JSBE

by Bill Pearis
As mentioned, Nashville's snarling, glammy Cheap Time are currently on the road with SoCal punk vets Social Distortion and The Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause (who plays a free RBSS show with The Gaslight Anthem). That tour hits the NYC-area on Saturday (6/22) at Stone Pony Summerstage with Hot Water Music and Sunday (6/23) at Warsaw. Tickets for both NYC-area shows are still available.
Cheap Time have squeezed in a headlining gig happening in NYC after those shows at Pianos on Monday night (6/24) with Pittsburgh's Shockwave Riderz and The Vim Dicta. Tickets are $8 at the door. Hopefully Cheap Time will try out material from their new album which is due this fall.
Shockwave Riderz features Phil Boyd and Paul Quattrone, who some of you may remember from '00s-era garage rockers The Modey Lemon, who called it quits in 2010. Their new thing is a little more stripped down and prone to riding a motorik groove. Zone out on their three-song EP below. In addition to Monday's Pianos show, you can also catch Shockwave Riderz opening for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion their previously discussed at Music Hall of Williamsburg (7/18) show (tickets).
All Cheap Time and Shockwave Riderz dates are listed, along with the SR stream, below...

Zomby Is Back 'With Love'...
