Music industry moves to Friday global album release

Thursday, February 26, 2015 1:39pm

Key groups representing music retailers, record companies and artists said that they would coordinate album releases to go out everywhere each Friday at one minute past midnight local timeThe music industry has announced an agreement to release albums globally on Fridays, ending divergences among regions that have fueled piracy in an age of instant music. Thursday's decision, after nine months of consultation, is expected to go into effect by summer in the Northern Hemisphere, said Frances Moore, chief executive officer of the music industry's global body IFPI. "What is absolutely clear is that there is nearly unanimous agreement that a global release date is a good thing," Moore told AFP. Under longstanding traditions, albums are generally released on Monday in Britain and France, Tuesday in the United States, Wednesday in Japan and Friday in Australia and Germany.

Music streaming: free is the key

Thursday, February 26, 2015 7:56am

Music streaming: free is the keyCompeting music streaming services are beginning to discover that the best way to get consumers to sign up and to start paying a monthly subscription is to offer a free tier, too. On Wednesday, Google announced that Google Play Music subscribers can now upload and store 50,000 tracks to the cloud free of charge that they can then stream via a smartphone, tablet or even desktop whenever they've got an internet connection. The offer's interesting partly because it recognizes that older consumers already have a record collection that they value and want to listen to -- therefore making its streaming and music downloading services more attractive propositions -- but also because over at Apple, customers are only currently able to upload 25,000 tracks to iCloud for streaming and they have to pay $24.99 a year for the privilege. A year ago, that number stood at 12 million and the huge jump, according to Spotify vice president of North American advertising Brian Benedik, is because the company now offers a free tier of its streaming service across mobile devices as well as on the desktop.

Thalassa Space Grows Up with Craft Beer, Live Music

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 3:00pm

Thalassa Space Grows Up with Craft Beer, Live MusicThe former pool hall will become a full bar, restaurant and live music venue by the end of the year. Berkeley's nightlife scene continues to evolve (and possibly mature), with the reconfiguration of the former Thalassa space as a music venue and craft beer garden. As a result, the 12,000 square-foot space, will transform from a pool hall into a full bar and full-service restaurant, with a large stage for live music and an outdoor beer garden with separate entrances for the restaurant and music venue. Berkeleyside reports that Alex Popov of Liquid Entertainment (the company in charge of the live venue) wants to create a "flexible space" for bands, DJs and special events, similar to setup at The Chapel in San Francisco.
