Where to listen to music

*

In a way that supports artists.

I cancelled my Deezer subscription a long while back. With the intention of going back to indie music discovery and support.

Discover: radio, streaming radio. Support: bandcamp.

Over the last 7 years, Spotify has earned me 4.3% of what Bandcamp has. Over the last 3 months it's 1.6%. Getting playlisted by the Spotify lords and heard by 50,000 people is worth as much as ~20 people deciding to pay a fiver for a release on Bandcamp.

1 Streaming radio

1.1 BBC 6 Music

1.2 soma.fm

listener-supported, commercial-free, underground/alternative radio broadcasting to the world

I subscribe to soma.fm and mainly listen to the cliq hop, DEF CON, and Drone Zone channels.

Question: does this support the artists? Does soma pay it forwards - maybe there's some licensing fee?
