What Releases Do you Miss the Most on Streaming Platforms

Outside of the usual suspects (Autechre, Boards, Aphex, etc), which albums/eps/singles/12 inches do you most keenly miss when you're on the popular streaming platforms? Which mp3s/flacs do you find yourself reaching for the most?

In my experience, most stuff that's not in the major streaming services can be streamed from Bandcamp.  That being said, if there was a 'streaming aggregator' type thing that would mix those services, Bandcamp, and my own stuff, I'd buy it in a second.  Old school Google Music used to do something like that(minus the Bandcamp), but now I'll have to figure out Plex if I want to do any of that kind of thing.

What? Do you mean what releases aren't available to stream? If so that was a long and awkward way to say that. 😄

Ha no yeah exactly. I pulled my mp3s back out because I had releases that aren’t and probably will never be on streaming. That’s what I mean - files you still keep even with the whole worlds music at your fingertips on Spotify etc

Not so much talking technology - I’m talking about releases that aren’t and probably won’t ever be on streaming platforms.

Pretty sure almost everything I like is up there now. King Crimson is now up. Don’t think Devo is on Spotify. Skee Mask obviously, and DJ Metatron/ POD/Traumprinz. OPN’s Commissions EPs are currently missing though have been up in the past also Returnal has recently just been taken down.

Would like Analogue Bubblebaths and Analord but then I’d also like to win the lottery 😉

Just a couple things that I’ve noticed recently:

Speedy J

Lots of Coil

Popol Vuh

Lots of Ryuichi Sakamoto

Galwad y Mynydd

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci

and of course lots of my favorite “smaller” / more independent artists are rightfully missing

Milieu / CH

Donnacha Costello

JK

Donovan Hikaru

etc.

Does the "Feed Me Weird Things" reissue give you any hope on this front?

idk man.. there was also the reissue of flyin' lo fi https://jpbuckle.bandcamp.com/album/flyin-lo-fi but who knows about all the other stuff

Theres a fair bit of the Rephlex catalogue on Spotify (mostly stuff thats been reissued more recently) but yes the vast majority is frustratingly absent.

Weme Records, West Mineral, Experiences Ltd, Ominira, 5 Gate Temple, many small labels who won't do it.

And artists such as Terre Themlitz, Joanna Newsom and Zoviet*France who seem to be completely against streaming.

The annoying thing is when stuff is absent for mysterious rights reasons. Newworldaquarium's Dead Bears seems to leave and return at random. Guided By Voices have 30 albums yet 1 of them is missing.

I know I put the warp stable off limits but it was the disappearance of Autechre’s Peel Sessions that kind of put me over the top. 
 

A lot of old Mo’ Wax stuff is missing too. A lot of DJ mixes seem to be victims of this too, probably for licensing reasons. I’ve been getting surprising mileage off some of DJ Krush’s old stuff I used to listen to in college. 
 

I missed DJ Krush’s Code 4109 in particular.

I’m sure I read Spotify will begin to put up old DJ mixes in the near future.

Would be nice to have the entire Bochum Welt back catalogue up on there.

Recently had to sync a couple of his albums to my phone as something prompted me to revisit and they weren't on Spotify.

A few others I recently had to sync in iTunes:

Drive Like Jehu - s/t
Antipop Consortium - Tragic Epilogue
