I’ve been running this playlist and newsletter for over four years, and have been subscribed to both Apple Music and Spotify for longer than that.
Both services have their pros and cons (mostly cons) but I do get value out of them. Spotify is better at suggesting me songs I might like, and Apple Music is better at recommending music/playlists that it knows I like.
The other day I realized that Spotify thought I was depressed, and, yeah… Probably. The playlists that it started to recommend were very on the nose.
Algorythms are scary things. They see what you do, and who you are, sometimes know you more than you know yourself.
This month’s playlist features Teenage Halloween, Queens of the Stone Age, Slow Joy, Abby Sage, Yellow Ostrich, Beck, and more!
