Dear artists, give me the means to listen to your music properly. Let me download it!
Even now, some artists with whom I come into contact suggest I listen to their music online either through Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube or other similar services.
These tools are very good to discover the music of a musician but not really suitable for quality listening in my opinion.
I prepare my interviews by listening to an album many times on my stereo at home or on my iPhone with a good pair of headphones.
