In a bid to separate itself from the crowded (and growing) field of streaming services, Rdio is doing one thing no other platform is doing: They're letting brands, including record labels and media outlets, curate their own stations.

Rdio announced a couple of months ago that a smattering of tastemaking labels would be given keys to their own stations, including Sub Pop, Merge and Epitaph.

Yesterday (July 7), the streaming service announced it's adding a few more labels, including Glassnote, XL Recordings and Arts & Crafts. The labels all have fairly deep catalogs and spin classics alongside new releases.

Rdio is also growing its list of "Influencer" stations, adding Refinery29 and Yelp (which doesn't seem to make a lot of sense -- when we turned it on earlier, it was playing "Higher Love" by Steve Winwood) to a list that already includes the A.V. Club and country singer Hunter Hayes.

Rdio isn't the only service making moves this week. Tidal joined the ranks of streaming services that offer a family plan. They're giving 50 percent off each additional person added to an existing account.

And Spotify struck out at Apple -- or rather their app store -- emailing customers to let them know they can save $3 if they cancel their current subscriptions and re-subscribe via Spotify's website.
