Episode 17: Abbot Kinney, Kyle Craft & More

There are as many ways to explore new music as there are people who want to discover it. You can slowly dissect one album, one artist at a time…the deep dive method. You can cast a wide net and skim as much variety as you can, the troll method. . You can latch on to a trusted reviewer. You disregard the so called experts and explore on your own.

And here’s the cool part. Here are Song Spotters…we encourage all of the above. We start each week with a skim of as many of the roughly 4000 new albums released this week as we can. We pick about 100 of them and put them in the Fresh Cuts playlist over at Audio Bonsai.com. Then Adam and I pick our personal favorites and come here to tell you about our Top 5 Spot that we’ve done a bit of a deeper dive.

So now you get to trust our opinions, or not. Take one of two of these five and do some deep dive…or trace back to the Fresh Cuts and troll the chaotic waters for your own favorites.

That…I think..is the joy of Song Spotters.

I’m Justin Tyler (and I’m Adam Gillespie) and Welcome to Episode 17 of the Song Spotters music discovery podcast on the 2 Guys Talking podcast network. On This episode we’ll be discussing our favorites from the releases of April 29, 2016.
