What's your opinion of Spotify and its premium version?

I used to run the free version with adblock years ago but then forgot about it because everything is on youtube or otherwise downloadable. Now it seems like everyone has an account so I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

>artists don't get a great deal out of it

Spotify pay out about 70% of their revenues as royalties, but the majority of their users don't pay a subscription and bring in absolutely piffling amounts of money. There's absolutely no reason to feel guilty about paying for Spotify.

>They haven't exactly got a monopoly, they're fighting off competition from amazon music, apple music, youtube/google, and a few others.

Sure, just like BP don't have a monopoly on oil, there's a dozen other evil megacorps to shaft you in their place. I get that they're providing people with exactly what they want, so I'm not faulting anyone for using what they're offering. I'd just encourage anyone who's serious about music to think about being more direct with how they obtain their collection.

I say it's harmful overall because as shite as the way the old music industry was, at least you had artists focusing on being artists. You got a big fuckoff loan from some executive who directly reamed your arsehole in person and made you their bitch. Nowadays musicians are dividing their time between being youtubers, teachers, gigging, and commodifying their whole life on social media in order to scrape a living; every one of those companies wants a share of your arsehole, and none of them has a big enough cock to get you off.

Anyway whatever. Thank fuck I have a real job instead.

Let's have a thread about artists and bands you thought would make it big but it never happened for them.


Protocol were dropped by Polydor in 2006 and split up not too long afterwards, with their debut album never released.

8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

I listened to them when I was about 12 or 13, it has genuinely never occurred to me that they'd still be going. Next you'll tell me Papa Roach has a cult following in Latin America or something.

But yeah I think it's serious. I would suggest he's probably on summat though.

I recently watched that Ray Charles biopic with Jamie Fox, and I enjoyed it so much that I got inspired to compose some music the next day and obtain his entire discography. Much to my chagrin, I realised that 90% of his songs are about meeting women, relationships with women, women leaving him, him leaving women, anything along those lines, etc.

Do people in regular society genuinely enjoy listening to songs about these topics? When they hear something like "baaaaaaabbbby yooouuuu leffffft meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" does it really send shivers down their spines? I personally can't think of anything more boring than writing a song about love, romance, or relationships.

The name of the sampled instrument in these tracks is called a Rhodes piano, right?

It sounds amazing when it's paired with hip hop drums. I'd happily listen to albums of just this alone.

Yep, it's a Rhodes piano. Probably best known in recent years from the intro to Portishead's Roads. You might enjoy Miles Davis' landmark album In A Silent Way, which heavily features the Rhodes.

I used to leave GTA2 on the menu screen just to listen to that track. It is indeed funky as all shit.

You can get a reasonable approximation of it in most DAWs by putting some sort of generic hammond-style organ plugin through a fuzz and rolling off all the top end.

I have listened to and loved this album before, though I didn't make the specific instrument connection. It's a beautiful bit of jazz, but the itch I'm trying to scratch with this thread is more like hip hop drums over simple samples.

To take this immediately into the weeb-zone, N-qia make the perfect albums for long train journeys. I've spent many hours staring out of train windows over the past 10 years to this:

Well, I'm officially old. I don't think I recognised more than handful of albums off that list and I've not listened to a single one (except perhaps Lady Gaga via simple osmosis).

The only album I really remember liking from the last 10 years was Chase and Status' "No more idols", and I guess the second La Roux album was alright, sort of.

Most of the music I've discovered since '09 has been older 2000-2009 era stuff that was either a genre I wasn't interested in at the time or so obscure that no one my peer circle had discovered it.

If it's true that people forever listen to the music of their youth, then my youth ended in 2009. RIP.

There's only a few on that list I know I've definitely listened to: PJ Harvey, Daft Punk, Todd Terje, Courtney Barnett, Grimes only Visions as everything after that hasn't been to my taste and Fiona Apple.

I haven't discovered much new music in the past fifteen years or so. That said, this came straight to mind for best albums of the past decade; there will be more but for the rest I'd have to check when they were actually released.

I'll tell you in 20 years. Right now, I'd probably say Stretch Music by Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Your Queen is a Reptile by Sons of Kemet, Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides by SOPHIE and Racine Carrée by Stromae, but I'll probably disagree with myself shortly. If I can slip in an EP, I'll add search result by umru.
