I play a certain playlist at work 1-2 times a week to help me concentrate and surprise, surprise, my top three artists are the first three albums on that list. xP
I mainly use spotify for ambient albums when I’m working on stuff but it looks like my Overwatch playlist took over my year end list. Also KOOL A.D. cheated by having multiple 100 song albums.
This is pretty inaccurate. St.Vincent (her new album isn’t even very good) and The Cardigans can’t possibly be top five. And all the top songs except Sun to Solar is just because I have them separate in some playlist and clicked on them individually a lot of times, not because I listened to them more times than other songs. These are good hits, it’s just not accurate.
Artist that should’ve been in top five instead: Amber Coffman, Kelly Lee Owens, Julia Holter, Mount Eerie, Talking Heads, Bob Dylan, Deerhoof, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Susanne Sundför, SZA.
Big shoutout to Wednesday Campanella though, who kept me happy a lot this year.
I throw on a lot of lo-fi hip-hop when I study, so this list doesn’t surprise me at all.
I am also too lazy to link the songs. Just listen to the Waypoint podcast to hear my top track.
Yeah, I guess I really did have More Life on repeat this year. Hideki Naganuma came from listening to a Jet Set Radio playlist I used while playing Lucio during Overwatch, lol.
Yeah, I was 3 out of 3 on the guesses, but that wasn’t much of a surprise.
Year of Kung Fu Kenny, Brockhampton and Flower Boy, for sure.
I end up listening to full albums (or starting them, at least) so much that 4 of my top 5 are the first track off albums I listen to a lot ha.
Aw dunk, mine’s way skewed 'cause I sleep to music D: The major non-sleep stuff I listened to most were a few tracks from Let it Die, apparently, but I’m still pretty amused by this “top genre” list
Melting Sun I: Azure Chimes - Lantlôs
Abrogation - Ulcerate
Requiem for dying mothers, pt 1 - Stars Of The Lid
Brought to the water - Deafheaven
The Missing - Vaura
Given that I’m a folk musician, the amount of metal and post rock on my list is slightly hilarious.
but it’s common that musicians tend to listen to a wide variety of music styles, no?
looking at my list, badbadnotgood was my favorite found of the year without a doubt, I’m digging the playlist they made with songs that I missed this year
Pretty cool spotify finally providing some stats on this stuff, usually relied on last.fm for unnecessarily specific content like this!
IMO, last.fm’s stats are still better. It’s more detailed and a little more accurate.
Also, my Spotify is relatively new. My last.fm has been tracking me since I was in high school (/10ish years?) so that thing just has a crazy amount of data on me. >.>
Their end of year stuff isn’t quite as fun though?
Yeah no totally their site is kinda built around the concept for the individual user. Yeah I have 7 years on last . fm now and it weird and fun to know that I on average over 7 years listen to 42 songs a day.
Yeah Spotify’s presentation of the stats is way better even if I think some of their stats are more interesting.
This list is actually pretty much on the spot, but I would say that ‘Castles High, Marble Bright’ by Caspian should be my number one song.
Short answer? No one does.
Slightly longer answer? It was created purely to fill a void in genre names for similar sounds that go across multiple “traditional” genres from hip hop to pop to electronic.
Haha, weird. It’s like the least scary episodes of Black Mirror.
