Support artists while you listen to them!

Ever made a deep sigh when it comes to the possibility, or lack there of, of supporting the artists you want to listen to? Some are making it a lot easier for you, while others still try to lock their material behind as many paywalls as possible.

In the past year it has been possible for you to flattr music as you listen to it on Grooveshark. Unfortunately most of the popular artists don’t know that they have money waiting for them and have not signed up to get their share of the cake.

Luckily for us there are actually a number of artists who do. It is important that we support artists that recognise that there’s a shift coming on monetizing their content. We want to make it easier for to you support them, so we created this little playlist. The artists are identified through MusicBrainz.

All the songs in the play just were found through a search on Flattr. Among the the artists listed are Amanda Palmer, Message to Venus, Moto Boy, Binärpilot, Professor Kliq, Dubmood and more.

Sign up to Grooveshark and connect your Flattr account! Then go over and subscribe to this playlist. Listen through it and see what you like.

    Might be a bit offtopic here, but I really would like to Flattr artists on musescore.com (a community site for sheet music)

    That’s a good suggestion onny! :)
    Have you suggested it to them?
