Episode 16: Plastic Flowers, Strange Bones & More

To paraphrase Dickens: The quest for new music has never been easier and it has never been so overwhelming. The access to unlimited music brought to us by the streaming sites has made nearly everything just a click away. On the other hand, the quest for new music has never been so overwhelming. With so many options, most people go into overload and fall back on their old favorites.

Lucky for you…Adam and I are willing to wade into that sea of chaotic newness so that all you need to do it press play, sit back, and get all the joys of discovery while we share our Top 5 Spots of the musical releases of April 22, 2016.

I’m Justin Tyler (and I’m Adam Gillespie) and Welcome to Episode 14 of the Song Spotters music discovery podcast on the 2 Guys Talking podcast network.

If you’ve been listening to the show, you know the routine…but if this is your first time listening, you may be wondering how we whittle the 1000s of new weekly releases down to just 5? Well it all starts with a playlist. See, Adam and I are musical curators over at AudioBonsai.com. Each week we (and our third partner Jesse (who will show up a little later in the episode to share his Lyrical Lookout)..we put together a …somewhat less than 100 track playlist that samples the week’s new releases. (This week there’s 93 song on the list.) That’s the Fresh Cuts Playlist and it’s updated weekly for you discovery enjoyment. There’s a link in the show notes of this podcast. We each listen to that playlist in secret so we dont’ influence our votes. And then we meet up here to share the Top 5 songs we Spotted in the weeks new music.

The end result is you can just listen to our favorites…or you can wade into the Fresh Cuts and find your own Favorites.
