however, this does not seem to be happening.
i listen to exactly the same music, more or less, that i listened to when i was 17 or 18, bought one record a week and then spent weeks - months - obsessing over it. i just don't have as much time as i used to to go out and discover new music - hence the last.fm reactivation.
but there's also a different reason which makes me wonder.
i honestly don't care about chillwave or whatever's on pitchfork these days - it sounds like too much i've heard before, executed in a manner that could only appeal to people who never had to put up with the sound quality of a second-hand walkman.. people younger than me who have never seen a walkman, that is.
