What is Spotify's method for making new releases available? It seems really hit or miss on Tuesdays (when most albums come out). Sometimes the album will be listed, but not available, sometimes there will not even be a listing for the album, and some are available right away in the morning. Most of the time, new albums are available right away on Tuesdays on services like Rdio and MOG, but Spotify seems to always lag behind and get some new albums later in the afternoon or a few days later. What gives?
Right now, I can listen to the new Aesop Rock on Rdio just fine. I can search for it and see the listing for it on Spotify, but it tells me that it's not available. Any chance Spotify is going to make sure new releases are up in a timely manner?

Good question. Basically, we're releasing new music every day, but the bulk are released every Friday.
This uploading is done on US time, so when it appears on Spotify very much depends on which country you're in.
