I’m impressed by #Music (or Twitter Music or whatever it’s called…)

I’ve been struggling to see the benefits of the streaming music services like Spotify and Rdio. It could be because I’m doing it wrong, but I just haven’t been able to get the benefits from either of those services. I log in and am presented with a whole lot of pop music I already know I don’t like, and strong suggestions that I add my friends to get better recommendations. But, like me, my friends don’t want yet another service they have to add information to.

Again, I’m probably doing it wrong, but that’s what my first impression of those services has been.

On the other hand, #Music managed to play me a new song by the Cat Empire that I hadn’t heard about within the first two minutes of me using it.
