I've been using Spotify now for about six weeks. Often I'll just be wasting time on the computer so I have an excuse for listening to whatever comes to mind and explore whatever. This week it's been the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's movie 20, a documentary about Pearl Jam. Great stuff. Before that it was NWA's Straight Outta Compton. I don't fancy myself a rap fan, but what the heck-and honestly it wasn't half bad.
Every so often however, I really have run across some great artists and great songs that set me to digging deeper and really enjoying what I found.
|Florence Welch leads the Machine on the David Letterman Show|
|Andy Stacks and Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak performing.|
|84 year old Tony Bennett collaborates with 27 year old Amy Winehouse on Duets II|
Of course I've also been mining the other stuff, artists I knew pretty well or at least knew of, exploring Radiohead, the Kinks, Sammy Hagar, and a host of others. I'm off now to answer that age old question: Who is better: Bangles or Go Go's?
