Completely Conspicuous 430: Fifty-Fifty Split

Part 1 of my conversation with guest Jay Breitling about our favorite music of the first half of 2016. Listen to the episode below or download directly.

Show notes:
- Biggest trend so far: Death
- A whole generation of musicians is in senior citizen territory
- Ticketmaster settlement is as useless as TM normally is
- "Stairway to Heaven" lawsuit ended the right way
- Breitling plays law-talking guy
- Tidal tries to start its own bidding war
- Ultimate strategy is to get paid and get out
- The free tier for streaming services will eventually go away
- Bandcamp's iffy stats
- Breitling's not-quite-top-10: New Dog, Horse Jumper of Love, Guillermo Sexo, Gold Muse, California Snow Story, Yr Poetry
- Kumar's bubbling under list: Radiohead, Ty Segall, Modern Baseball, Future of the Left, Halfsour, Used Cassettes
- To be continued
