I’ve been doing a lot of reevaluation lately because … well, it’s a long story – one that I’ll be doing a post on very soon, maybe even this week – and I’m still processing a lot of shit. Naturally, this means I’ve been distracting myself with all sorts of things, like studying, drawing, painting, and listening to new (to me) music.
Thankfully, YouTube Music’s algorithm has gotten better at suggesting different artists to sample, but there’s still quite a bit of work I need to do. It doesn’t help that it includes some of the other videos I watch over on YouTube itself, which can make curated playlists a wee bit weird. And it includes artists that I am not fans of (I’m looking at you, Lords of Acid). But then again, Spotify had years of information regarding my listening choices, and they were quite piss poor when I started there, too. I even complained to my then-husband that I preferred Pandora, which I’ve actually considered listening to again now that I’ve dropped Spotify.
What a weird, cyclical world we live in.
But anyway, here are some of the results from my new and improved musical suggestions, and as always (since last week), feel free to head over to my YouTube playlist!
