1. Digital music doesn’t need to be saved. The music industry does.
Proud to be from Michigan.
twee as fuck.
No one feels bad for Robin Thicke.
Have you ever encountered these people in real life??
Any interaction i’ve ever had has always been one of hospitality, acceptance, and faygo– they don’t judge and are just looking for a group of like-minded ninjas to welcome them as their own.
So next time you judge– look in the mirror, then go eat a butt.
Thanks a lot Amazon but this is pretty much worthless!
No serious music fan is going to pony up $100 per year exclusively for this service– not when you can get the same thing on Spotify for a fraction of the cost, not to mention that they have already negotiated with labels to play the hits. How do they expect me to turn it up to a “Feel Good Country” playlist WITHOUT Taylor Swift?!
I feel like this a feeble attempt to grab a corner of the market but, to me, encouraging a love of music comes across as an afterthought.
Anyway. This is just another middle man between the artist and the listener. Another Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, etc.– featuring focus-group-tested preprogrammed playlists that hate it when you listen to that classic album start finish or lose your shit when you meticulously build a playlist that only makes sense to you (I made one recently featuring, among others,: Black Sabbath, Beyoncé, Yo Yo Ma, Tame Impala, Grizzly Bear, Dolly Parton, and Wu Tang Clan)
Tl;dr: Bandcamp and KickStarter are the most successful and natural evolutions in the digital realm, responding to the original music industry earthquake– MySpace.
Heads up: the name of the now-classic BSS album is “You Forgot it in People”
Seriously though: why no drum off between Chad Smith and ?uestlove….?
That is something I would actually want to see.
” It looks really bad.” and “Insufferable” are comical understatements
If i’m at a Radiohead show, they have a limited number of songs they are going to play. If they /have/ to play older stuff, “Creep” should not be on that list. (Read: just play all of The Bends, for pete’s sake)
