Why are there no good FOSS alternatives to Spotify, especially on phones?

Why are there no good FOSS alternatives to Spotify, especially on phones?
I don't want to download music in 2021 nor do I want to use something as retarded as NewPipe.

    If you don't want to download anything, use freezer. It's Deezer but no ads, and free downloads. I think it can still stream at 320kbps, but it can only download at 128kbps now. If you do need to download, you can get a free month of Deezer premium and download your entire library.

    FOSS usually don't have a marketing team & management. Spotify requires musician to use the service. You have to make sure you have exclusive music to you platform initially. You can't get similar.

        Don't let perfect be the enemy of good. Besides, isn't the Spotify desktop app Electron as well?

    > Why are there no good foss streaming?
    Because the stuff you stream is all proprietary and copyrighted. So drm is compulsory, and someone has to pay the record labels. Spotify/Tidal/Apple music/etc pays (pennies to) the record labels and iplements drm as they want.

    > But I wanna stream drm free music on a foss platform!
    Under the DMCA, you are entitled to one copy of a copyrighted work for backup. That means you can rip cds, or purchase flac online, (or use less than legal means of getting flacs), upload it to your VPS and stream to your phone. The caveat is that it requires a vps with tons of uplonk bandwidth and hdd space.
