This time around, Matt wonders how Apple's plan with the Beats Streaming service will affect music sales and the state of physical media. Plus, he takes that issue a step further by investigating a new piece in the Atlantic Monthly on how record labels are using the Shazam app to predict the next hit record. There is also a recap of Matt's recent haul at Vertigo Records in Grand Rapids, excitement of the Ride reunion announcement and a plea to get a very special Pernice Brothers record issued on vinyl. There is a lot here to digest. You best get started.
