Now, I'm the first to admit that I can be a little slow on the uptake...I refused to listen to Nirvana's Nevermind for over 10 years after it was released because I felt like the music press and my mates were trying to force me to like it!!! What a douche! The same is kind of true with Spotify! However, since accidentally wiping my iPod whilst travelling and not having access to my CD collection, which is still in storage since moving home, I have been forced to listen to music online and more often than not, I do it using Spotify.
Since I've started doing this, I've found myself listening to an even broader range of musical styles than before, rediscovering old favourites and tapping into new bands and tracks that I otherwise may have taken months or years to unearth.
I tend to spend long periods of time at my desk editing shoots, handling emails , blogging etc... and have started creating playlists to stave off boredom, repetition and insanity. As of now, I'll be sharing my monthly playlist of favourite tracks with you.
