Been thoroughly enjoying this beat-tape from Eevee. Her discography to date is available for the bargain price of £10 ($12) from Bandcamp. I'm sure it's no coincidence I now want to buy a SP-404 MkII to plink away on in the countryside.
As for stakeholderism, or what Mars calls mutuality, it says it puts the interests of customers, workers, suppliers, communities and the environment alongside those of the family shareholders. That comes with some big investments, such as $1bn to support sustainable initiatives such as renewable energy, and a policy of paying its taxes in full. But when it talks about these publicly, it is mostly because they are germane to its business. It does not wade into political debates, nor does it pontificate on every social issue.
The Mars company tale is an interesting one. From the Economist
I won’t pretend this is a device for everyone. I happen to have strong opinions about the evolving state of the music industry, from predatory streaming services to the frankly embarrassing state of smartphone music applications. But if they work for you, that’s fine (though I’d encourage you to still directly support musical acts you care about by buying their music, merchandise, and concert tickets).

ProleteR has re-released (and remastered) his debut album Curses from Past Times which is an absolute masterwork DJ Shadow-esque piece with a very French vibe. If you've never checked it out, give your ears a treat.
“There’s a man out there, showing off his stab wound,” I say. “He seems pretty happy.” My colleague meets my eye, and tilts his head towards the bathroom. It is a tiny movement, imperceptible to anyone else, but I know what it means. He has racked up a line for me, on the shelf behind the cistern. I should go and do it now.
