Spotify…


Spotify logoI’m loving Spotify, but something struck me about it yesterday that I’d never thought of before. Previously I’d just used it as a way to listen, at work, to the music I owned at home, without the bother of carting a USB flash drive full of MP3s back and forth, but…

Yesterday morning on the train to work there was a student sat across from me with a copy of Gallows “Orchestra of Wolves” on vinyl. Normally I’d have forgotten all about it by the time I was in a position to do anything about it, and I wouldn’t have bought it without hearing it. Thanks to Spotify, I can now have a few listens before I buy.

So will I buy it? Well, the jury’s still out on that one. Still, I did buy Grandaddy’s “Under the Western Freeway” after listening to it on Spotify. Ironically, that album’s not on Spotify any more… methinks the band (or their label) are missing a trick… * disclaimer: Amazon affiliate links
