If you've been waiting the Black Keys' newest album to pop up on the newly en vogue (in the U.S.) streaming site, then Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have some bad news for you. The dudes, who've caught some flack for their Spotify boycott, explained their decision to VH1: “[Streaming services] are becoming more popular, but it still isn’t at a point where you’re able to replace royalties from record sales with the royalties from streams," according to Carney. "For a band that makes a living selling music, it’s not at a point where it’s feasible for us.” He also suggested that services like Spotify are more beneficial to labels than artists. No word on where Auerbach and Carney stand on the Great Megaupload Debate of December 2011.
