You may be surprised to hear this coming from someone who works in the music industry, but Spotify is one of the major ways that I discover new music. In addition to the endless stream of press releases I get on the daily, Spotify's 'Discover Weekly' and radio features have been the gateway to plenty of bands that I've immediately began to fall in love with. And our buddies at Filtr have a new program that is going to make discovering new bands (and said bands' stories) even easier.
Columbia has begun a new Filtr Buzzbands Spotify playlist that features tunes and exclusive interviews from emerging acts that are on the tip of everybody's tongue in the indie/alt circles and are about to have their big moment in the mainstream spotlight. Featuring Chairlift, Lewis Del Mar, St. Lucia, and Wild Belle, this will be your big chance to know the stories of these emerging indie stars before they take over in the months to come. You can hear about the influence of Brian Eno on Chairlift's Caroline Polachek and as someone who's been blasting "Dancing On Glass" for a while now, I can't wait to dive into the stories that St. Lucia shares as well.
You can't miss the Spotify playlist above.
