Blocland would not exist without it. The team at Blocland became friends because of Spotify chat.
All of us first met on the Stereogum comment section and went on to build our friendships on Spotify chat. The Stereogum comment section was not enough for us. Your admin would not have become pen pals with the websites namesake without the feature.
This is a SLAP in the collective groin sack of Blocland’s Editorial Board (We really need to explore diversity).
Now we have to rely on Spotify’s curated “Coffehouse Chill” and “Metal for Mondays” lists. I don’t trust you to make a quality playlist. I want the option to make a sex playlist with my friends and then mock them for adding “Do It, Try It.” I don’t want a random sound-tracking my seduction. I want Colin.
We want Colin.
This was to be expected. Profit over community. Us music nerds will find another way. Not TIDAL (are TIDAL jokes still funny?) but another way.
I know you wont see this Mr. Spotify but you broke our hearts.
PS – I’m using Spotify right now. Also below is Colin’s sex playlist.
