This Spotify Playlist Will Change The Way You Listen To New Music

If you like discovering new music and you have Spotify... then you need to know about this playlist.

This is not an ad so don't even try me, but I fucking love Spotify. It's what I use for all my music listening and yeah, it works for me. SO SUE ME. I like it a lot.

One of my favorite things about Spotify are the custom playlists it generates for you every week.

Discover Weekly, which is a custom playlist of songs Spotify thinks you will like is great, but my problem with it is that sometimes it puts random-ass Hoku b-sides from 2000 on it that are... awful (no offense).

I also love new music. New Music Friday, a playlist created by Spotify of random new music, has become almost a religious event for me. I literally wake up on Fridays excited to see what's on it.

But New Music Friday includes literally ALL new music, so it can be kind of all over the place. I don't particularly care about the new Toby Keith record (no offense.)

That's where Release Radar comes in.

The other week, a friend of mine (who shall remain nameless because of drama), introduced me to something called Release Radar.

Release Radar is a customized playlist created by Spotify with ONLY new releases they think you will like on it.

So think of it as a New Music Friday playlist tailored just for you.

I've only known about it for a few weeks but my Release Radar playlist has already become my favorite playlist. I have discovered many hot jams because of it.

Moral of the story: Release Radar is a great way to discover new music you will like. I just love it. End of story.
