Welcome to Song Spotters, the music discovery podcast where we distill the thousands of weekly music releases down to just a handful of Top Spots. We wrap em up, ship em to the listen device of your choice and let em wiggle their way into your ears. It’s all far less gross than that last part makes it sound. It’s actual best way we can think of to help you discover new music and new artists to love.
I’m Justin Tyler (and I’m Adam) welcome to Episode 11 of the Song Spotters music discovery podcast on the 2GuysTalking Podcast Network.
As I said, we’re Justin and Adam, musical curators at Audio Bonsai.com. How DO we distill all that music? Here’s the quick run down. Every week we, and a third curator, Jesse, who will show up a little later in the episode for his Lyrical Lookout, put together a playlist that samples those 1000s of new releases.. That’s the Fresh Cuts playlist and you can listen to the whole thing on Spotify,there’s a link in this episode’s Show Notes to the Audio Bonsai Listening Post. On the fresh cuts for march 11, there are 89 track on that list. It covers everything. Popular artists, totally unknown artist, hip hop, country, black metal, electro funk. It’s a sonic gumbo of delicious noise. Adam and I take that list and pick our favorites so we can share them with you.
