Top 3 records I just cannot accept are not available on Spotify

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.

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.

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.

    1. I’m afraid I’m in the ‘don’t’ category. I really liked the first two records, but after that we sort of grew apart. To me there’s definitely a difference in sound. It seems to me My Ruin is more old-school metal in a way, whereas Tura Satana sounds more like what was popular at the time, if that makes any sense? I do expect to start liking My Ruin tho, it just takes time for me to get it sometimes. For example, didn’t get a single NIN record after The Fragile until last year. So any day now…

      1. Right on, right on. As far as NIN, I feel about the same… “Bite the hand that feeds” still makes me shake my head like a disapproving mother. I just cringe at the almost bubblegum intrusion. His old school stuff, though, stands the test of time for me.
