We all know that Discover Weekly, Release Radar, Daily Mix, Today's Top Hits, and New Music Friday can be good places to uncover new music to you.
However, there's also a great wealth of independent blogs and sites using Spotify to collect their latest favourites in playlist form, which act as equally good resources to find new music tailored to your tastes.
Here's a few of my favourites that I'd like to share. I have a playlist folder for all of these, and I'd encourage you to follow any relevant ones to you and do the same.
The Line of Best Fit
The 'New Music Discovery' playlist does what it says on the tin. Updated weekly by one of the UK's most respected independent blogs.
Another reputable British site, that splits their finds into a couple of quality playlists.
'Essential New Tracks' always contains 100 tracks of new Indie, Rock, and Alternative stuff.
Nope, not an entire playlist of the German kraurockers' back catalogue. But 'Neu Discoveries' is the name given to their feature dedicated to showcasing brand new up-and-coming music.
Loud and Quiet
A personal favourite read of mine in print, Loud and Quiet have their finger on the pulse of the best emerging talent. Their main playlist is updated every week.
My favourite independent music site doesn't do regular playlists, but their annual rundowns always last me right through December until the following November.
Gorilla vs Bear
Here's another great annual playlist from another great blog. They add into it throughout the year.
Nialler 9 have a weekly playlist, but their 'Best New Music' mix is also updated often with fresh tunes to those with indie tastebuds.
This print publication actually don't actually have an official Spotify presence, but their faithful readership always curate their annual rundowns into neat playlist form. One for the really out-there listeners, who want something a bit challenging at times.
Not just a sick blog name, but a cracking New Music playlist that highlights things with a sweeter, poppier angle. Worth dancing to!
