Often times, people will tell me about new and great music. Often times, I will try to recommend music I like to others.
One thing I noticed, though: It doesn’t stick.
A band or musician I discover myself is far more likely to become a regular on my iPod and Spotify playlist. Music that somebody (a real person, not a recommendation-algorithm) shows me will most likely not be listened to by me.
The human mind is a funny thing.
