3. Einstürzende Neubauten – Alles wieder offen
I will cut them some slack for this because A: Perpetuum Mobile is available, which is currently my favorite of the Neubauten records. And B: It is a supporter record, I wouldn’t expect Spotify to have any of them really. Or, as a supporter I feel that would be fair (makes sense, yes?). But there is a definite lack of Neubauten material, and we (yes! all of us, have you not been informed?) need Neubauten material, and Alles wieder offen – we miss it for so many reasons. Ich hatte ein Wort being one of them.
2. Tindersticks – Curtains
Every. Single. Record. Tindersticks has ever been involved in. But not Curtains, their masterpiece? That’s just wrong. I dare you to listen to this and not fall in love with it. Seriously.
1. Tura Satana – Relief Through Release
I could easily write an essay on the greatness of Relief Through Release. It’s only been 20 years (approx) – still not over it. As in love as in 97.
Note: Their unavailability would not bother me, as I clearly own these records, if I didn’t have to keep adding them manually to my Spotify. Why is it that? If I’ve added them once shouldn’t they just be there for ever and ever? Especially if I use Spotify on my phone, and I have these records stored on my phone as mp3s, shouldn’t Spotify be able to pick up on that? I know that used to be the case. Mostly, I’m a huge fan of Spotify. HUGE. But I am disappointed. Wee bit.
