Spotify’s got a new feature called “Discover Weekly”, an automatically generated playlist of music that’s tailored specifically for you. For something made by a computer this playlist is pretty damn good!
The new playlists updates every Monday, and it’s generated using the music you’ve been listening to, as a foundation for its picks. It also takes into account the taste of people who listen to music similar to what you listen to.
The playlist is definitely targeted towards discovery: it was mostly stuff by artists I don’t ever listen to, or stuff I’ve never even heard before. But I've given it a listen and it’s definitely all right up my alley.
According to Spotify, all users should have Discover Weekly within the next few weeks. In the meantime, here’s the playlist based on my humiliating musical taste.
