I’ve been playing around with Spotify lately. I think if I didn’t already use Google Music and Amazon Cloud Player, it would be a compelling sevice. I like the ease of sharing music with friends (even though I have no friends yet. Hellloooo friends?!?) Yet the ease of Google Music and Amazon lies in its browser based format. Spotfy seems a little antiquainted with its stand alone player. Also, pricing for Google and Apple have yet to be formally announced, but if the rumored $25/year is true, then Spotify’s $4.99/year is a bit pricey.

If you don’t visit NPR.org regularly, you’re really missing out on some good music. Here is the latest album from Little Dragon
Ok, so Spotify has just hit today. Here are a few links, impressions and how to’s:
The Foo Fighters uploaded a “Tour Player” on Soundcloud yesterday.
They also made their lates albumWasted Light available for streaming.
Side note: There’s a Google Chrome extension that automatically disables comments. Man I needed that!
Here is the link for the stream of the Beastie Boys’ new album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part Two’.
Side note: ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part One’ has an interesting history.
Update: The Beastie Boys are also on Soundcloud. You can hear the whole album there as well.
Morcheeba has a new album out ‘Bllod Like Lemonade’. NPR interviewed and recorded some stripped down songs. Sounds good.
