WHAT'S THE BUZZ?

A growing number of industry insiders say they’re now spending less time looking at SoundScan and much more studying data from BuzzAngle Music, which they say lets them drill down and get a fuller picture of an act’s progress much more easily. On a daily basis, BuzzAngle tracks sales, streams and spins (the latter courtesy of Mediabase), which can be analyzed by major market, distribution platform, provider and other filters. Will Jim Lidestri’s NYC-based firm soon eclipse SoundScan as the biz’s go-to number-crunching source? Stay tuned.
