Stimulating Station Seeds

In case you need some new music, here are a couple of seeds for you to start stations on your preferred streaming service:

Jess Glynne: If you're looking for a sound that is best described as "Adele with less pain, but a little more attitude," then she's your seed artist. 

Sometimes you just need to feel like an empowered woman ready to kick the world's ass. This station will make that happen with remixes, dance stations, and just straight up empowerment anthems. Ignore it at your peril.

Hamilton Leithauser+Rostam: And sometimes, you're looking for an indie sound that's indie-er than Vampire Weekend. For that, I give you Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam.

Their collaboration resulted in a sound that's somehow part-Vampire Weekend, part-Walkmen, but mostly their own thing. In addition to their awesome sound, this station brings in Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, Hamilton Leithauser's solo work, ROSTAM's solo work, ROSTAM's other collaborations (like Ra Ra Riot, Solange, Frank Ocean, and so many others), and is a varied station that has so many different things going on in it.

Thought of the week:

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" - Isaac Asimov
