It's 2013, and human beings are still trying to figure out how to automate music discovery. Trends come and go, new services pop up and disappear, and a music discovery app is created, marketed, and killed off every few days.

Check this out."

Today, we are that friend. Here are some recommendations that your new custom radio station/music recommendation robot won't be able to give you.

    Great post. Should do this more often.

    If you like Fe and Lana check out Shady Lover by Elisa King. Seriously one of my favourite chill tracks I just discovered.

    Vondelpark. Wow !!!

  • Ben Kingsley

    If you like Neon Indian, check out Work Drugs. Seriously.

    Also, the Bon Iver/Phosphorescent comparison was dead on.
