Shared Music

A pair of Bose headphones, a Mac trackpad, and a pair of glasses

On Friday of last week, I reached out to folks on Twitter, requesting recommendations for some of their favorite music. I was in the mood for something new. I asked people to share an album that they totally dig, but that maybe not everyone else might have heard of or be into.

I expected that I would get a few new-to-me recommendations, I was happily surprised with how many different genres of music were shared.

As a way to build myself a playlist, and to serve as a reference for future listening, I pulled together the recommendations into a single blog post.

You can scroll down to the recommendations by tweet if you’d rather skip the list of recommended albums. I am sharing the tweets so you can see how so many people shared such wonderful music with me (and you.)

P.S. With luck, I will have to come back to this post and make it Volume I.
