For the True Hipster: There Is Now an App That Finds You Song With 0 Plays
12

Today in stuff, meet Forgotify, a tool that finds you songs with 0 plays on Spotify.

As Tech Crunch reports, 20% of all material on Spotify has zero views, which means 4 million tunes.

The Forgotify team stated:

"We love music.

"That's why we were so shocked to learn that millions of Spotify songs had been played only partially or never at all. A musical travesty, really.

"So we set out to give these neglected songs another way to reach your earholes, and Forgotify was born."

    How does looking for obscure music make me a "Hipster" - my only motivation is to find cool stuff that I like, and support that cool stuff that I like, weather that's a little california band from the 80's called HYTS, or some guy called "Freck Scroggs" singing old curmudgeony shit at his kitchen table into a tape recorder!

    We're so swamped with music from successful, big name bands, that it's easy to forget that there are millions of voices out there that aren't Metallica or Ghost or Rush. Some dude sitting in his bedroom in a dumpy house in Newark, NJ might be making your new favorite songs, but if you can't hear it, how are you supposed to know? I say let everyone have a chance to be heard.  I don't use this Spotify thing but maybe I'll check it out.  It's not a bad idea.
