Today, Amazon unveiled its new “cloud.” An online storage space for all its customers to store all their Amazon-purchased media files on. This gives you the ability to access your music from any location (home, work) or on the go (via your cell phone). What’s most surprising about this announcement isn’t about how far technology has come…but the fact that no one thought of this so far. In the era of streaming, instead of trying to pre-determine the content you think the user will want…why not let them choose it (and pay for it) themselves. I always wonder if the people who run the music industry actually listen to music themselves.
This week will be a bit of a catch-up week (not to be confused with ketchup week which is in May). I could do lists for Unwritten Law, Sum 41, or Whitesnake. But would you really rather see a bunch of lists for bands you don’t listen to or care about anymore…or would you like me to turn you onto some new music. Of course, that Whitesnake list is certainly tempting. If you haven’t heard William Fitzsimmons lately, he looks like he belongs in the freak folk crowd…but his sound leaves most of the freak at the door. Good basic folk music to mellow out to. His fourth album is out this week. Enjoy.
