How many songs or albums are released a week worldwide? Apparently it's something like 100,000.
Yet I go to the New Releases column under Browse and there are only 100 entries in 25 lines over 4 columns. Just 100 new releases – out of 100,000
I can understand Spotify wanting to peddle the commercial rubbish near the top but I do expect the list of new releases to scroll for more than just 100. There are new releases by Bon Iver and Red Box but they're not on the New Releases page. Why not?
So, how about increasing the list please to at least 1,000 releases and let me scroll ad nauseum because that's how I like to find my music. I look at the cover and artist name and choose my new material that way.
Yes, I know there's some 'made for you' playlists directed at me but among a few gems is a sea of **bleep**.
Come on, Spotify, get your act together – and stop being so corporate. There's some amazing talent out there – let them be seen and heard.
