Most friend-requests I get at my little-used MySpace site are from young women using their sites as a front for porno activity, so I feel a sense of here-we-go-again whenever I get a request. Another delete button job.
So I was pleasantly surprised to get a request from someone called Schuman the Human, which didn’t sound like a porn thing.
He turned out to be a musician and songwriter. More to the point, unlike many singer/songwriters in MySpace who are OK but bland and derivative, Schuman the Human is really good. Do check it out. It’s part bluegrass, part Belle and Sebastian/Tindersticks, and manages to be more than the sum of its parts. Very enjoyable stuff.
