As always at this time of year, there's a deluge of music recommendations to catch-up with (I'm putting together a list of the best bits I missed - watch this space). One quick recommendation is Harvest Moon, a rather pleasant Ambient mix from Philip Sherburne which is well worth a listen.Noted, 08 Jan 2021, 14:35

Just ran my Spotify profile through Judge my Spotify and it came up with this:
How Bad Is Your Spotify? Loading your music library... Analyzing your listening history...
okay hold up
Do you really listen to Momma On Da Flo by Big Dope P? (I asnwered yes)
Like ironically? (no...)
Seeing plenty of electronica.
Finding a lot of Julian Cope.
Like... a LOT.
oh boy Love Like Blood by Killing Joke.
oh great another John Maus stan...
You've been listening to a lot of Max Richter lately. u okay? (Yeah why)
Of course Aphex Twin.
One last thing...
Fuck marry kill. Choose fast.
- The Magnetic Fields (Fuck)
- John Maus (Kill)
- Throwing Muses (Marry)
Let's just leave that there.
Have you been to Coachella? (no)
Well this has been... interesting.
Let's get your final score.█
> Thank your obsessions with The Magnetic Fields, new wave, and Sufjan Stevens for that.
> Based on your listening habits, I can also tell you your spotify was...
> lilith-fair-mainstage bad
> boomer-relaxation bad
> bono bad
> sitting-alone-in-the-cafeteria bad
> Here's what else is going on in your aural trash fire:
You listen to these tracks too much:
Golden Streets by JPattersson
Phasic Reflex by Reptant
Lost In Translation by Bas Grossfeldt
Entangled Particles by Pinch
World Struggle - Ambient Dub by Babe Roots
You stan these artists to an uncomfortable extent:
The Magnetic Fields
You are 3% basic. Sabaturin and Robot? Where do you even find this shit?.
You're stuck in the early 2010s. You only listen to Obama-era jams like Scud Books by Hudson Mohawke and Cascade of Events by André Bratten.
Analysis finally complete.
I need to go recalibrate my taste levels.
