Introducing: Your Weekly Playlist Fix

Written by Lindsay Byrne | January 25, 2016

I don't know about you guys - but once the holidays are over, I need a major music pick-me-up. Something to carry me through the chilly, gray weather that tends to last much longer than it's welcome. 

Spotify is my absolute go to for new music. Their Discover Weekly playlist is updated every Monday, with two hours of personalized music recommendations based not only off the songs you love, but also off of what other Spotifiers with similiar taste are listening to.

High Fidelity’s Rob Gordon had it right – the making of a mixtape is a very subtle art. That’s why we created Discover Weekly,” says Gustav Söderström, VP of Product at Spotify. “There’s never been a simpler, more personalised way to discover music, with every playlist tuned just to you every single week.”  

I have to admit, it makes the Monday mornings a little more bearable when theres an untapped playlist, tailored to your personal taste, just waiting to get you wherever you're going. Can't beat that!

My Spotify is a mix of everything from tropical house to country to indie rock.

Here's what Spotify conjured up for me this week.  Enjoy!
