Me, I discover it the old fashioned way – through friends and on the radio.
Most of the album, is quite down tempo. Just Adele‘s lamenting voice and a piano or guitar. If you’ve been recently dumped or are looking for love, it will either push you over the edge or steel your will. It could go either way.
The upbeat tracks, however, are just awesome. I’ll Be Waiting, Rolling In The Deep and Rumor Has It are all in repeated rotation on my latest iTunes mixes.
Then today, when I was cycling through stations on my commute (yeah, I do it too) I heard a jock talk about a song he just played. It was Robert Smith doing a cover of Platinum Blonde.
Are you kidding me?
I didn’t hear the song, so at the next red light I sparked it up on YouTube on my iPhone. I loved it after 30 seconds and then clicked over to iTunes and bought it right there. At a red light.
What are the last couple of tracks you bought? How do you discover new music?
