Holla Back.

Are you a fan of Spotify’s Discovery Weekly feature, where they make you playlists every Monday featuring a bunch of stuff you may not have heard but it assumes you’ll probably like? It does a surprisingly good job at mixing in things that are just familiar enough with educated guesses on things that you should be listening to.

Now they’re rolling out another similar new feature called Release Radar, where they make a playlist every Friday of the newest releases from bands that it knows you frequently listen to, along with a handful of new releases from things it things you’ll probably vibe on.

We, of course, can’t get enough of this type of thing. It’s just one reason we make lists like the one below where we show you all things you’ll probably like to be doing this week.
