If you haven't checked it out, you need to... www.spotify.com
We in Australia have been in the dark too long with regards to Spotify, a way to stream any music you so desire, for free... Well if you want ads, which I don't so am opting for a premium package for now on a free trial to see whether it is worth it for our family... Which I already feel like it is, for the consumer! Don't know how/if it benefits artists at all, but taking out the middle man, shop, cd, downloading time on iTunes, floats my boat BIG TIME! And on the premium package you can make tracks available offline so you can still listen out and about on your phone (app) if you so desire...
I have been on a hip hop hiatus since falling pregnant with Marley, so it's been nice to get easy access to stuff I have missed, old stuff that's on cd in my garage, and get to taste stuff that I really could never be arsed getting before... And loads of b sides from 90's bands that I just couldn't get in the 90's... There is also Marley, kid LOVES pop! Those LMFAO dudes, Kylie, Madonna and her favourite Lady Gaga, so having these artists at my fingertips with out any commitment is very exciting! On a baby tip, they have Yo Gabba Gabba, The Wiggles and The Fairies too, all CDs we have bought for Marley's room, now at the touch of my fingertips downstairs... And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you can play other people's playlists!!! Which is lazy and exciting! So if you are in the mood for a sound, just play away... I am a fan, a big fan!
