Is it your New Year’s resolution to refresh your music catalogue; to stop running in place listening to the same music you listened to five years ago? Do you want to be a little hipster sometimes and find yourself saying stuff like “I listen to bands that don’t even exist yet”? Look no further, simply follow my Spotify playlist called Less known bands/artists. Hours of songs by musicians that deserve recognition. And trust me, I add a lot of promising music to this list. I only add artists/bands that have less than 25 000 listeners on Last.fm (sometimes I let them stay until 30 000, but it doesn’t happen a lot). Once they’ve gained a lot of recognition I remove them. I’ve had Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Matthew and the Atlas, Balance and Composure, Perfume Genius and Young the Giant on the list to name a few. A lot of different genres are represented, so if there’s a track you don’t like just skip it and hope for the next one to be better.

I know I’m a little late. Christmas Eve was several days ago. I just haven’t had the time to write here, really (first world problem!). I would like to take the time to wish you all a merry Christmas (or rather, I hope you all had a good time) and tell you that I actually have a present for you. Yes, a present. It’s a Spotify playlist called Not Another Smörgåsbord and it contains a bunch of Swedish bands/artists that I would like to spread the word about. Swedish music that I truly recommend. The best part is, this playlist will be updated even after you decide to subscribe to it. As soon as I come across nice Swedish music, I’ll make sure to add it and share it with you.
Sounds brilliant, doesn’t it? This is the link which will lead you to the playlist. Subscribe to it, follow it, or whatever the word is these days. Just make sure you don’t miss it. If you like it, feel free to share it with your friends.
I should probably mention that some songs are in Swedish. You might not understand the lyrics without Google translate, but I think you’ll be able to appreciate the melodies anyway. At least I hope so.
