I don't understand this mentality. Isn't a little money better than no money? I simply can't afford to buy an album off of every band I like.
Bands like this need to quit biting the hand that feeds. Spotify allows their audience to grow exponentially since every spotify user now has a chance to listen to their bands. Before spotify, I wouldn't ever bother to download music from some bands, much less purchase it, so the fact that I am now more likely to listen to new bands due to how easy it is, all while the band is getting payed for it (regardless of how little) is amazing.
You have the reach of illegal downloading while gaining a little bit of profit as the cherry on top of the exposure.
Instead of telling people to steal your music, begin using spotify as a way to get your music out regardless of who is getting payed, since the alternative involves nobody getting payed, or in this case, the record store taking a loss.
I hope this quote is out of context, because if not, it's a pretty dumb way of expressing your disapproval of Spotify.
