5 Must-Follow Spotify Playlists

By in News | 9 Comments

Everyone is talking about Spotify today because of their initial public offering. So I thought I’d take a minute to share a few of my favorite Spotify playlists with you.

1) New Music Friday Christian by Spotify

New Music Friday Christian is just one of Spotify’s many, many, curated playlists. What’s great about this playlist though is every Friday Spotify completely updates it with freshly released new songs. Sometimes that’s a good thing–I mean who doesn’t want to be the first to discover the next big hit? Other times that means wading through some songs that defiantly aren’t going to be the next big thing.

2) CEDM: the very best of Christian EDM by Salt Of The Sound

Salt of the Sound might not be the first artist that comes to mind when I say “EDM” but that hasn’t stopped them from building one of the best Christian EDM playlists on Spotify. The electronic ambient duo has compiled a playlist of the best “CEDM” artists you’ve probably never heard of before like Levi Whalen, Har Megiddo, and Marshall Marshall.

3) 2018 INDiE CHRISTIAN by Indie Christian Sound

INDiE Christian Sound start out as a guy sharing his playlists on Reddit and it evolved into platform for sharing independent Christian music. ICS has playlists for hip hop, electronic, worship, and more. My personal favorite though is their yearly indie playlist full of new and upcoming artists.

4) Not Your Mother’s Christian Music by Jonathan Tarlton

Not Your Mother’s Christian Music kind of feels like the granddaddy of Christian music playlists on Spotify–ironic given its name. It was one of the first playlists I followed when I started using Spotify and it’s still being updated weekly. It’s a great playlist for discovering the artists you’re unlikely to here on your local Christian radio station.

5) Punk Never Dies by Indie Vision Music

Anyone who’s been reading Indie Vision Music for awhile now will know we’ve got a fondness for punk rock. That affection has carried over to our Spotify profile in the form of a new playlist titled after the old IVM compilation series, Punk Never Dies. You’ll find a mix of new and old punk on our playlist just waiting you to discover.

Have you got a favorite Spotify playlist? Or maybe you curate a playlist on Spotify. Leave us a link in the comments!

I don’t tend to use Spotify because I like to actually own my music and (more importantly) I want to give artists I listen to as much money as possible – Spotify is crazy with how little they give artists per stream. It blows my mind. I know some artists, like Emery, are pro-streaming but if I enjoy an album I’ll try and buy it from their website (if available) or Bandcamp.

But I can see how these playlists are a good way of finding new music!

Bro, check out my bandcamp page. Majority of artists I’m following have free downloads. Also, all releases on my wishlist are free as well as the first 8 in my collection: https://bandcamp.com/JesusIsMySuperhero

Noah do you think emusic’s blockchain venture has any real chance of moving the industry towards a common distribution system?
