Fun Apps to Discover New Music

Hi everyone, happy summer! Congratulations on getting through this crazy semester, it is truly a great accomplishment. Given that that many of us are still quarantined and have had jobs and internships for the summer get cancelled, it seems that we all have some extra time on our hands and are looking to fill it. What better way is there to fill that time then to listen to new music? I won’t recommend anything specific for you to listen to but I personally have been playing around on a couple of apps that have helped me find some new music to listen to that I thought I’d share today.

1. Boil the Frog

Boil the Frog is a website through Spotify that allows you to choose two musical artists and it will create a playlist with music that transitions between the two artists you chose. The website will give you 30 second samples of songs on the playlist it creates but allows you to download the playlist onto your Spotify account with full-length versions of the songs. I have found this to be a great way to discover new artists that are related to artists I already know and love. I have also found it fun to do wacky combinations like Vampire Weekend and Prince which just provides an entertaining musical experience.
