King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

I remember loving Nonagon Infinity when it came out, but then kind of forgot about it.
Then this band showed up in my youtube and I'm hooked.

Here's a free album if you're interested
You may quote me on that.

Spotify has got me listening to music again. But what's the best way to get more "new" stuff out of it? My musical taste stopped evolving about twenty years ago. And only "new" artists I've come to over the last decade are Public Service Broadcasting and Paolo Nutini.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

The Pale Emperor (2015) is actually pretty good.

This week I have mostly been revisiting Marilyn Manson.

He really had it going on in the 90s, before he became the horrible coke bloated weirdo he is now. A goth Lady Gaga for angsty Gen Xers

Good call on PSB!

In my experience the best way to get new unknown stuff of Spotify is to compile a playlist for a workout, a friend or some other reason where you might want to specifically dictate the tracks and then Spotify will 'helpfully' start adding tracks to it of it's own violition that it thinks you might like, leading to utter confusion and frustration.

If you're able to access it wherever you're listening, I'd actually suggest Youtube as a great tool for new music. The stuff it's algorithms suggest on the right hand side can lead you down all sorts of rabbit holes of new bands, obscure stuff and things you might otherwise have never heard of.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Yes, I love the similar music suggestions on Spotify, and I love creating Playlists for everything from walking, running etc. Great way to discover new and old songs I've missed out on.
