Listening: Noon Pacific
Here’s the unfortunate paradox about music on the internet: You can find any song in the world that you want to listen to, but it’s super hard to find a song you didn't know you wanted to listen to. Music discovery online pretty much sucks compared to the old-fashioned method, a good DJ on the radio, or at a party.
The playlists on Spotify? No flow and no obscure tracks. They are painfully bad. They really are. And the user experience there makes browsing basically impossible too.
But recently, I've found another source that's worth mentioning. Noon Pacific is a playlist that drops every Monday at noon (Pacific time), and it's solid.. There are 135 playlists up right now, which is 135 more times you don’t have to fire up that "Chill Party" playlist on Spotify. They're hard to link to, but I guess that what the app is for.
