  • STHoldings Ending Vinyl Distribution This Month, Continues With Smaller Roster

    Jul 17

    UK-based STHoldings launched in 1998 and grew to be an important electronic and related music distributor, both physical and digital, though noted in particular for vinyl distribution. In May they announced the end of services for around 150 labels with the intent to continue working with a group of 30 labels. This is likely good news for those in the 30 but certainly not for those who are losing a unique specialty distribution service at the end of the month. STHoldings is described...

  • New Music Messaging Apps From Soundwave and La-La Take Divergent Routes

    Jul 17

    Music messaging is kind of a weird space since people rarely send music as a message. Two mobile startups are taking what I think are the two main routes for music messaging, sharing music while chatting about it in the same feed and picking out snippets of music that can function as messages. Soundwave has added a form of group music messaging to its mobile app that takes the former route while La-La recently debuted an iOS app that sends music snippets as messages. Soundwave: Group Music...
