Streams for Vinyl

We recently launched a competition to celebrate reaching 2,000 likes on our Facebook page.
All you had to do was like a post about the competition on our page, and then, when we reached 2,000 page likes, we would draw a few names out of hat and send the lucky winners of copy of our album on vinyl. Simple.

We could only draw a few names, because shipping vinyl is a bit expensive, and money is tight, as always. So we had an idea.

What if fans could fund the shipping fees indirectly, via a streaming service for instance.

We get roughly €0.005/stream on Spotify. If someone listened to our songs 2,000 times on Spotify, that would cover the shipping fees. See this post for more info on how streaming services pay.

So let’s do a little experiment together.

If you have a Spotify and Last.fm account and they’re already linked, skip the next paragraph.
If you don’t, here’s how to participate.

Then register for a Spotify account.
Download the software and go to Preferences.

Add your last.fm account details so that you can scrobble your songs.

When you reach 2,000 Uniform Motion listens, send us a link to your profile and your postal address and we’ll send you a copy of our record! It’s as easy as that! Added bonus is that we might get to discover your excellent taste in music.
