So I added a few indigenous songs to a few different very long playlists. One only has a single indigenous song in it, as far as I'm aware. Now almost every song they suggest regardless of playlist is very specifically indigenous. Race isn't a musical genre and treating it like one doesn't produce the desired effect. I came to spotify to listen to music. Music.
Just music. Why is that even a thing I have to ask for? Limiting my music suggestions to indigenous music restricts my options to a very small, very maligned selection of songs maybe 3 of which made it out of the reservation. It's brutal. I am deeply, deeply offended and even more so frustrated. I can't make a list of 193 songs and have 2 of them be from my own people or else spotify will cut you off all that eminem, decemberists, raconteurs and NINs. from now on it's native music all the time every time forever and ever. thankfully the discover weekly playlist isn't jenked up too.
