Imagine my surprise hearing a disgustingly American music advert for a band called THE SCRIPT (as awful as you might think) sandwiched between 'Sweet Adeline' and 'Tomorrow Tomorrow' from the XO album by Elliott Smith! Imagine it! I almost papped my kecks out rotten. Terrifying and unnecessary. What does everyone think of Spotify? I can only find half of the stuff I want to hear and the rest of the stuff I want to hear is sitting in my music folder anyway. But, for playlist purposes, this is quite annoying. Can you mix early Sebadoh and Rocket From The Crypt with The Shangri-Las and Baden Powell? Not really. It's sort of like finding an old mouldy bag of tapes in your loft, plucking ten out at random and trying to make the most kick ass mixtape ever. Sort of. Not really.
Speaking of which, there's an Elliott Smith film playing on Pitchfork.tv this week. I love him and his silly little boo hoo crying songs! LOVE HIM.
