Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months, you'll have heard all about Spotify. Indeed, you can even read S-Express' Mark Moore's views about it on this very website.
While Mark makes a persuasive argument of the inherent dangers of Spotify, particularly regarding the potential dangers for the struggling artist, there seems no doubt that it's here to stay. It's free (if you don't mind the 30 second adverts), it's convenient and you can - almost - find any track of your choice on there to listen to. All perfectly legally. It's like God's very own jukebox.
With this in mind, we thought we'd utilise Spotify to show you first hand some of the tracks we've been raving about this year. It's 3 months into 2009 and there's already been over 200 albums released so far. So, we've picked 50 of our favourite tracks from January, February and March, collected them on Spotify and arranged them into a handy playlist for your listening pleasure.
You'll obviously need to have Spotify installed (and so, apologies to our readers in North America where it's not yet available) and, if you're in the UK, you don't even need an invite to get started.
So, once you're up and running, click here to open up our playlist. And don't forget to tell us what you think below, and feel free to share your own Spotify playlists with us.
