Song of the day – 95: Veronica Falls
I discover music the way I’ve always discovered music.
It’s through a network of friends whose taste I know well enough to taste, and respected allies. The way these social networks form and materialise might change over the years, but the basic premise stays the same: someone suggests music that I might enjoy based on their knowledge of my taste and I listen to the music depending on whether or not I trust that person to make the initial judgement call correctly.
Take this, for example. Alex and I don’t always agree on everything but… I still trust her way enough to check out personal recommendations. (This particular one was a response to my parading of my latest major femme pop crush.) I don’t know where this band are from, how long they’ve been going…. anything. I just know that I love this particular song.
And isn’t that easily enough?
