British indie band The Pocket Gods have established a career of releasing songs that are a little more than 30 seconds long. Why? Because Spotify and the other streaming music service pay out after a song is played for 30 seconds. No further money is coming, so why write and record anything longer?
The Pocket Gods’ latest, er, opus is a 39-second track complaining about Spotify’s low payouts. I think it speaks for itself.
