Odd feeling but I'm bummed about this. I always felt RDIO was a fantastic service. And absolutely had the best aesthetic design.

I only switched off of it because Trent Reznor was the creative director for the Beats system. And very much enjoyed that as well.

Thank you, +RDIO. You did music right.
 
The day the music died: the ignominious end of Rdio.

Solid backgrounder on Rdio and good look at why solid design and attention to detail ultimately didn't carry the day.

Rhapsody and Rdio were the original streamers in North America. However, Spotify, even though a late arrival, came to be the service of choice because of its free ad-supported option.

Now we have Pandora picking up the Rdio pieces so that it too may offer an on-demand service rather than just an Internet radio station-type service.

It’s easy to forget now, but the first modern music streaming service to arrive in America was Rdio. Like its founders, Skype billionaires Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström, Rdio was awkwardly...

Brett, that seems to be the general consensus, same as your observations. Great service, terrific design. I suppose it's an extension of the old adage, nice guys finish last.

If you can catch this, do it.

The venue is amazing, the performance is classic and the interspersed interviews are lucid and revealing.

We lost such a talent.

It's a bummer they don't have Kim Deal along for the ride. But despite the furor over her departure and the kinda-crazy, overly-negative reviews of it (cough cough Pitchfork cough) I am really enjoying this album.

To me, it's a perfect blend of the old Pixies, some new Pixies and whatever may lie between those two. Nothing ground breaking, certainly not my favorite ... but lot's of fun.

Overall, I'm happy to have them back.

Last year, Kim Deal left the Pixies to concentrate on the Breeders, but the band lived on, and just released 'Indie Cindy,' their first album in 23 years. We spoke with Black Francis, David Lovering and Joey Santiago about the new album and recording without Deal.
