Geoff Barrow [Image by: Mintonfilm]Jay Z’s newly launched Tidal music service has reignited the debate about the economics of music in an era where streaming services like Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube reign supreme. In hopes of adding to that discussion, Portishead’s Geoff Barrow recently took to Twitter to share exactly how much money the band actually earned from its 34 million streams last year. His estimate: After taxes he was left with £1,700, or around $2,511, according to Consequence Of Sound.

They just formed earlier this year, but their dark, ambient, electronic rock took Music Connection’s June Featured Band/Artist contest by STORM, garnering over 500 votes before the end! ¬†Ending up in 2nd place, they gave our June winner, Gathering Mercury, a solid run for their money and tromped all the other competition!
