This Week In Music: D.A. Wallach on Chester French, Spotify's Roadblocks, 'Accommodationist Culture'

On this episode of This Week in Music live from Sonos' studios in Los Angeles, host Ian Rogers of Topspin sits down with D.A. Wallach of Chester French fame and Spotify's official artist in residence. Here, the technology-minded artist talks about starting a band in college (Harvard) at the same time he was getting deep into technology. A record deal that would support him financially for three years helped the young grad= decide which direction he would go in. He also notes his early-adoption of Facebook, becoming friends with Kanye, refusing to subscribe to our "accommodationist culture constantly encouraging people to compromise" and the unnecessary road blocks facing Spotify.
