Of course they can dress however they like but, yeah, Taylor’s shorts combined with the garter belt thingies? Really? And why did Lorde borrow a pair of Kevin Smith’s jorts?

This is just wonderful news for the whole world to enjoy! If you need more Gustav Ejstes before the album is released, check out Swedish indie supergroup (that’s what Swedish media calls them) Amason: http://amasonband.com/

June 23, 2015 on Dungen – “Åkt Dit”

Actually, this one, not linked from Spotify themselves, seem to be free: http://routenote.com. So it looks like I’m wrong then. I’ll give you this one, Michael, but one day… [embedd funny Arya Stark gif to make everyone forget the fact that I probably was wrong]

It might not be for artists backed by a label, I have no knowledge of that, but for unsigned and smaller acts using one of the services, or aggregators, to get their music on Spotify it sure is: https://www.spotify.com/se/work-with-us/labels/aggregators/

That’s my big issue with Spotify, you have to pay an annual fee to keep your tracks there. Obscure stuff cost the artists or the labels too much to keep on there in the end.

Makes me think of that canadian reggae song… Rude? (AND THAT SONG IS JUST AWESOME DUDE! /subconscious me) No, I’m pretty sure I don’t like this, Everything Everything.

Yes indeed, no Thee Oh Sees? Really? That’s gotta be criminal.

I saw Thee Oh Sees twice at the Primavera festival in Barcelona. The first time, at the festival site, was awesome. The second time, at the closing party on a club, was a top 10 gig ever for me. And, boy, have I seen shit, last time I checked I was way past 40 years and there I was, in Spain, effing ecstatic. I never saw the previous version of Thee Oh Sees but I have a hard time believing they could’ve rocked more. This new edition, with two drummers, kicks all the asses all the time.

Don’t forget to add Jason Mraz “I’m Yours” and make it playable on an iPod.

Pro tip from that: “In your iPod, make a “Feel Better” playlist that includes songs that work for you. Try to choose positive, uplifting songs that you can sing along to. “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz works for me every time.”

If the #1 song of the year won’t cheer you up I don’t know what will. https://soundcloud.com/castle-face-1/thee-oh-sees-turned-out

Hope this day turns around for you.

I still think some kind of “pay what you want (starting at X bucks a month) and the artists YOU are actually listening to get to share that money”-service is the key to achieving a monopoly. A small one time fee for artists for every uploaded song, a percentage goes to the company providing the service. Of course, marketing of artists on the service will also help finance it. Someone should create that, how hard can it be? Pretty effing hard, yes, but monopoly, right? :)

June 10, 2015 on Ben Gibbard Isn’t That Excited About Apple Music Either

One thing that’s not that great about Spotify is that it’s kind of hard for really small bands to get their music on there. If you don’t have a record company backing you, to add your music you’ll have to pay an annual fee to one of the many companies offering a “get your music on spotify”-service. So, yes, Apple (and perhaps Tidal, though I seriously doubt that) might be on to something, the streaming service that in the end gets the support of the DIY scene and combines that with a gigantic database of music, will probably dominate the market in a couple of years.

Haha, it was the young one, whatever that means. :) I’m blaming it on the sun, the late hours and me and my friends constantly calling him that instead of Booker as a lame joke all through the festival.
