From YouTube, to Pandora, to Spotify, streaming music is piloting our listening habits in fascinating new ways that both upend old hierarchies and recall innovations of previous eras.

Spent the last few months working on this. Thanks especially to Ryan Dombal for editing it, and Joy Burke, Mike Renaud, and Mark Beasley for creating the ridiculous layout. If nothing else, you have to give me credit for interviewing David Bazan and dj/rupture in the same article.
Just digging in to this, but the layout is incredible.
