Why I Love Last.fm

Up early. Time to deal with vast amounts of unread and unanswered emails (sorry everyone).

Not sure what to listen to.

Been in a My Morning Jacket thing all week but I don’t exactly want to listen to MMJ.

So I go to last.fm, put My Morning Jacket into Similar Artist Radio.

And this is what I’ve listened to in the past 20 minutes:

Wolf Parade – Same Ghost Every Night
M Ward – Story Of An Artist – Daniel Johnston cover
Spoon – Not Turning Off
Wilco – Far, Far Away
Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah – Blue Turning Grey
Arcade Fire – Naive Melody (with David Byrne, Talking Heads cover)
Modest Mouse – Float On

UPDATE: I am signing off last.fm now, but I got these artists after I wrote this post:

Elliot Smith, New Pornographers, Broken Social Scene, Neutral Milk Hotel (loving them these days), Yo La Tengo, The Shins, The Decemberists, Iron and WIne, and Belle and Sebastian.

No radio station could top that run. Just awesome.
