Spotify the Goat

Spotify, accesible here, seems to be the next candidate to enter the contentious world of free online musics. Although not perfect, and nowhere near as novel as the old muxtape was, Spotify has a huge and ever expanding archive of artists who are freely accesible to listen to in gloriously high quality. As ever (!) you can rely on the trusty Goatwriter to be at the forefront of such new technology. Please follow the link below for a Spotify playlist which, although by no means complete, gives an idea of what Spotify has to offer (which seems to be mostly live/rare/alternative versions of songs). Let us hope that alternative music becomes higher on the list of priorities for the people at Spotify, with notable omissions including: Grandaddy, Slint, American Football and, oddly, Pink Floyd. Your guess is as good as mine as to how now defunct Derby-based math-rockers The Little Explorer made it onto Spotify - let us hope that this is a sign of things to come. See below for their award-winning music video.
