TV Club: Adventure Time: “On The Lam”

Newswire: SoundCloud has signed a royalty deal with 20,000 independent labels

As part of its ongoing battle to become something more than the place where that guy you were roommates with back in college posts his weird DJ mixes (while also hopefully not abandoning that super-hip, Millennial-positive identity), SoundCloud announced this week that it’s signed a licensing deal with more than 20,000 small-scale record labels. The deal, brokered by non-profit indie […]
