I’ve been playing a tonne with Google Music over the last month. It’s pretty awesome. Thumbs up a few tracks you like here and there and the “I’m feeling lucky radio” button gives you other stuff you may enjoy. It’s a pretty delightful streaming service.
I took it upon myself to transpose SiriusXM’s Alt Nation’s Alt 36 of 2014 to a Google Music Playlist. Thanks to The Unofficial alt-18 Countdown Playlists for having a great site with all the countdowns listed for easy navigation.
Say what you will about the state of new music, these playlists are always pretty awesome six months to a year after they’re built because they aren’t overplayed by then and it’s always nice to tackle familiar music.
