Spotify Me.

First: an unrelated photo of one of my favorite Thai treats — I was there last year! Sad. Had to get that out of the way…

Music ADD (self diagnosed, of course) keeps me on my toes, always looking for new stuff to listen to. That’s when I discovered a new Spotify app called Moodagent. It is similar to iTunes’ Genius feature but it extends your playlist options to new music instead of limiting it to your own personal music library. All you have to do pick a track that you’re into at the moment and it’ll generate a playlist for you! It’ll factor in “moods” like sensual, tender, happy, angry and even tempo. I haven’t played around with it too much, but I’m going to venture to say that it is smarter than Pandora radio (which always gives me Jack Johnson songs no matter what I type in – NO THANKS!)
