Just wondering. Ron Sexsmith popped up on my Facebook today – his new album is now streaming on The Guardian. Now Ron is one artist whose every new album I would once have bought unheard. For me record buying always had a big element of instant gratification about it – pop into a record shop and for not too much money walk away with something which gave great pleasure. The streaming thing kinda takes that element away and I find I don’t buy new stuff nearly so much. Once you’ve handled the goods they don’t seem worth so much somehow.
