It was reported this week that Spotify may be on the verge of offering artists like Taylor Swift and Adele the option of offering their music only to members who have paid subscriptions to the service. 

Though, as Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls points out, “To think that every artist is going to want to use the same tools the same ways is misleading. Because your ‘Taylor Swifts’ and the 1 percent of pop artists who have the ability to kind of control traffic and throw their weight around have such a different agenda and kind of power than the garage band down the street.”

Palmer joined us on the show to talk about giving artists more choice, and why going digital isn’t necessarily the only answer for indie musicians.
