Finally – America has Spotify! It’s time to see whether streaming music really can be a viable online model for the music industry and musicians.
It’s also time to admit that Spotify (its search engine and the metadata it has to work with) is massively flawed. It can often seem like a confusing, unnavigable mess. Label search in particular, which should be great, so often isn’t. Fortunately for new music fans like yourselves, there’s Radio Rambler to help you through the maze. Celebrate the arrival of US Spotify by subscribing now to Radio Rambler for semi-regularly updated playlists of the best contemporary composition the celestial jukebox has to offer.
