Good morning friends. As many of you know already, I keep a list of artists with albums out in 2010. Every time I find out about a new release I write the name down (but I typically avoid releases more than two weeks into the future). Accordingly, every time there has been a library update I search for the names in Spotify. This procedure makes it possible to quickly find releases added weeks or even months too late…
A recent addition to my secret list, which currently features 99 artists, was guitarist James Blackshaw and three days ago his latest album was added. The genre here is a mix of folk and contemporary classical and the album is quite good. Enjoy!
