Hey, you have awesome taste! Thank you for the recommendations!


I also think you'd really like this indie album that just came out if you haven't heard it yet:



Hace tiempo que soy suscriptor de Spotfy premium Familiar, cuando incie el premium familiar mis invitados se dieron de alta bien y no tenian ningun problema, pero en este mes les llego un aviso que deberian actualizar  el susbcrisión, y no les pemite y actualmente los tiene en spotyfy gratis.

¿que podemos hacer para correguir este detalle?


Once we could follow with lirycs why playing the tune- very nice thing!- now's no possible anymore! too bad.....Lomis

Great list!!


So excited the new Formation album is out!!!!! 🙂 Surprisingly I'm loving it even more than I thought I would (which I expected to be a lot so that's amazing for once to have something not just live up to expectations but exceed them entirely haha)

How about something for kids? Check out "kidsBeat" by Matthew Valcourt. Something different on the kindie scene. Nursery rhymes that sound like adult popular music, but kids love!

Here's an Indie artist that is starting to trend! Definitely check out her new song.

If you want the best of both worlds with music, check out Nos Rider - progressive electronic (like chaimsmokers) and dubstep/techno house fusion (like skrillex)
