You gotta love the UK’s The Pocket Gods. They are raging against the streaming machine by messing with Spotify’s algorithms in clever ways, most notably by focusing on releasing many songs, all about 30 seconds long.

Mark from the band writes: “As part of our continuing protest against lack of royalties from streaming we’ve continued with our 30-second song albums this time though we’ve decided to ditch the music completely so this is 118 tracks of white noise called The Periodic Table. We’re following this up with I’m Dreaming Of A White Noise Christmas in December.

All right then.
