Hipster consumerism online

Written by Tommi on 23.04.2009 21:41:25

Blog image for entry Hipster consumerism online Finding music is too easy these days. With services like Spotify, We Are Hunted, Sixty One popping up around every corner, being a hipster is easier than ever. Just let the music rain down on ya, with the sweet sense of being the first to find this and that band.

But what's the fucking point?! No, this is not (just) Tommi the greedy record dealer speaking, this is Tommi the music lover. This shit is simply off the chain. Music has been turned into a disposable commodity and not even in a literal sense as disposable in the literal sense means something you use and throw away, but you don't even have to do the latter anymore as the music never really even existed.

Sure I love Spotify and Last.fm as much as the next dude, but the culture this stuff breeds just ain't healthy. Or maybe I'm just a tired old fart complaining that "kids these days" have it all wrong.

I'm not tired. They're all wrong, I tells ya.

Whatever happened to fans? What happened to building a relationship with the music you listen to?
