My son likes to listen to lo-fi hip hop in bed sometimes, so I oblige his requests. Now, calculating that’s all I want to hear, the New Music” playlist serves me track after track of indistinct lo-fi. It’s easy on the algorithm, as those tracks are pumped out like cars at a lean manufacturing Toyota assembly line. Pop-up bands with ephemeral names dot the landscape of this genre. These songs are soothing, bland, and inoffensive, but rarely do you feel like you’ve just discovered something of great value. It’s more like finding new background music for your latest sesh on Skate City. Good enough playlists featuring these songs are already available, so there’s no need to compile any on your own.
