2023 Music Stats

Some interesting data from my 2 music platforms that I primarily use besides Bandcamp. I always feel the data is a bit off when it comes to specific tracks. Songs that I know were on massive repeat don’t show up, while other do. That’s why my end of year lists are always excruciatingly manual, compiled across 3 platforms. Nevertheless, always interesting to see what a computer thinks of my music habits.

New Slowdive

New Slowdive album out on Nov 1. We had to wait less for this one than the 22 years for the self-titled gem that came out in 2017. The single “Kisses” makes this release quite promising.

Posthumous Sparklehorse Album

Anything Mark Linkous touched was simply beautiful.  He left this world much too soon. He died by suicide in 2010 and there hasn’t been a lot of material that’s been found other than some collaborations with Danger Mouse & MF Doom. His family has been managing his estate and have worked to get a new EP out entitled Bird Machine later this year.
