I’ve spent the last week or so listening to a lot of music provided by In case you haven’t heard of or used the site, for $5 a month you have access to a fairly large catalog of music for unlimited streaming to your PC. While the catalog isn’t as deep as eMusic, and the Mog search engine isn’t that great, they do feature labels such as Cuneiform Records and Tzadik.

Streaming is the present and future of music distribution. I eagerly made the transition from physical media to MP3s five years ago and never looked back. Streaming eliminates any form of collection management, and provides music on the fly anytime you have an Internet connection (which for all intents and purposes, is just about everywhere). Additionally, for only $5 a month, the service is practically free.

If anyone wants to exchange playlists or listening suggestions, my userid is “mborella”
