Streets Song Twittering Begins. First Up: The Anti-Technology Ode "I Love My Phone"
Mike Skinner posts the first of the three (well, maybe three) songs he intends on unleashing via Twitter, cause hey--"I can't be bothered with all this trying to sell you music. It wastes valuable time." The track is called "I Love My Phone," sarcasm very much implied. "How would I survive without my outside line," etc. Which, great, although there's something unquestionably sad or at least confounding about Skinner posting this song via even the more intrusive/consuming/modern technology that is Twitter--either a cry for help or a nice little dose of irony. Probably a little bit of both, at the end of the day, given that he's such a self-aware guy and all. [Mike Skinner, h/t Pitchfork]
