How many Daily Mixes do you get on Spotify


#1

I get two.

So one is clearly more the rock stuff I like and the other more for the long instrumental stuff. I’m guessing people out there with more varied tastes must get even more? Or is it always just the two?


#2

First time i’ve actually looked at this - i’ve got 6!


#3

I used to get 5. Now it’s been cut to 4.
1: US 80s Hardcore Punk
2: Desert Rock/Stoner Metal
3: 70s Hard Rock
4: Soul & Funk that the wife listens to, with some Parliament/Funkadelic for me.

Desert Rock & Stoner Metal used to be split into two. Been listening to a lot of Trip-Hop lately, so hopefully should get one for that.


#4

What are the six?


#5

Aha. You just guess them based on the artists like I do? Or do yours actually get named?


#6
  1. never listened to them but they look decent. one used to be just full of Irish bands and looked worth a listen but it’s gone.

#7

the first 3 don’t seem all that different anymore, lots of crossover. 4th one is electronic stuff. might give that a spin.


#8
  1. Indie stuff - (BSS, Grizzly Bear, Angel Olsen, St Vincent etc)
  2. Australian
  3. Alt rock - (Radiohead, QOTSA, REM, PJ Harvey etc)
  4. More Australian - I think mix 4 perhaps a little more obscure, less mainstream than mix 2
  5. Dance indie rock hybird thing - (Caribour, Soulwax, the Killers, DFA79 etc)
  6. Dad rock (Stones, Steely Dan, Neil Young etc)

#9

I get 6, I think they give 6 to the best people.


#10

6 -
Mix 2 is Americana - Valerie June, Pokey, Willie Watson, David Rawlings
Mix 3 is all the old dudes - Fleetwood Mac, Springsteen, Dylan, The Stones, Petty, Pink Floyd
Mix 4 is electronic stuff with a bit GY!BE and Slowdive chucked in

and the other 3 seem to be general indie stuff and pretty much the same.

All very reflective of what I’ve listen to over the past year. I like my mixes but I barely use them.
