@fuego-agua maybe we need a musicoin online radio station that randomly plays all the songs on the site & rewards the artist accordingly.. it could also auto-tweet musicoin & the artist twitter accounts.. I'm no programmer.. just a thought. Peace.
@goose-s - as @darksidejosh says there are as many different kinds of labels as there are musicians. You're probably referring to major labels & their sub-labels? There are tens of thousands of tiny DIY / network-of-friends type labels out there that would benefits the musicians by joining.
I run my own label for different named projects I do and occasionally release a friend's music. I know plenty of artist focussed small labels that don't fit into the description you have. I know plenty of larger labels that do.
How and where the line is drawn between true indies/DIY labels and majors / large indies is another matter.
