In the past six months, I’ve mainly been scrobbling music through MOG and Spotify. Below is a fairly accurate list of my top artists in that time period (in parenthesis: number of times I’ve listened to tracks by that artist). It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted about finding and researching music online; I’ll have to write an update on that soon.
