Since May 2014, I’ve been dutifully paying for a Spotify subscription, and quite frankly, it’s some of the best money I spend each month. On a dollar-for-dollar basis, I get more enjoyment and utility out of it than I do from my satellite television subscription. Having access to virtually any music, virtually anywhere, is the sort of musical nirvana that I could only have dreamed of a decade ago.
One of the things that was lacking for so long in Spotify was any meaningful music discovery or recommendation engine. That was resolved (at least partially, anyway) a few months back with the introduction of their Discover Weekly playlists. How does it work?
