We’ve been traveling the country listening to all kinds of people tell their stories. When we’re on the road we generally listen to NPR, podcasts, and audiobooks – we’ll post more about those things later. Sometimes we listen to the wind and wheels, or we talk to each other. Weird, huh? We also listen to music.
We made the decision to ditch our physical copies of music before we left…we just don’t have the room for CDs, cassettes, albums, 8-track tapes, reel-to-reels, juke boxes, or live bands. So, even though I am troubled by what the digital interface is doing to reshape our experience of music, and I despise how Spotify treats artists, we bit the bullet and paid for a premium account so we could download and stream on the road. At the end of the day, we’re all consumers. If you use Spotify (I really don’t care if you do…we’re not endorsing them), check out our playlist. And, if you’re already on Spotify and looking for other music, you could put my old band on endless repeat. We might make $4 from it if you do! Well, if ALL of you do.
We continue to curate the Something Gigantic playlist, so if you have recommendations, let us know.
