Keeping Track of New Music Releases With Some Help From MacStories

Federico had a nice post this week about how he keeps track of new music, which centers around the MusicHarbor app for iOS. Discovering new music is something I’ve really struggled with since music blogs largely went away. The streaming services simply are not optimizing for new music discovery, especially not the way I would like. While the tool is focused on Apple Music and has an integration with the service, I simply search for the releases in Spotify, which is my current streaming service of choice.

I was 10 years old in 1984. On April 1 of that year Marvin Gaye was shot by his own father. I remember it really hitting my dad hard, as a human being, a father and, of course, a fan. Marvin Gaye was one of the first voices I remember hearing in music. Incredible loss for us all.

We made it out to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve today! Wasn’t as dramtic as ive seen in the past, but still so beautiful.

Micro.blog friends, I’m going to Seattle next week for work. I will have some non-work time. Tell me a single thing you recommend I do, place to eat or thing to see. Go!

Ozzie has his first ever bowl of Apple Jacks. We went to a birthday party the day before and instead of the usual goody bags, they had boxes of sugar cereal. Hope he enjoyed it because he probably won’t have them again for another 4 years. 😀
