Since releasing in the United States last summer, Spotify has become one of all-time favorite applications on any device. While I love the ability to stream practically any song in history (which, trust me, I do), I think the best feature is one that lies under the hood — the ability to find a heap of new artists.

I am seriously amazed at how many new, great artists and bands I have come across since downloading the software last July. To name a few: Bon Iver (up until Spotify, I only liked/knew “Skinny Love”), The Temper Tramps, Christopher O’Riley and The Head and The Heart, amongst many others.

While finding new artists is always great, another super feature is the ability to share playlists. It’s with this feature that I have stumbled upon a superb playlist called, simply, “Writing”. I cannot say good enough things about this playlist. Honest to God, every single track is a blessing and I am forever going to use this for my writing time(s).

Because I am in such a musical mood, I insist you look at the playlist I’ve been using for For Those Who Don’t Learn From History and give at least a few of the songs a listen. They’re grand.
