Harvest moon

I listened to Neil Young exactly once, Spotify. Once! Otherwise, I’ve only used Spotify to listen to new music incessantly, looking for the next Mountain Goats or Best Coast or National or or or anyone from this millenium. Anything new.

So why is it that every notification I get is about Neil Young or CSNY or some other 60s band? And it was new Neil Young! I just wanted to see if his new album matched up to some of his brilliant latter work (it didn’t).

I’m pretty sure there was Seinfeld episode about this… except it was Tivo. And sadly, that was in the 90s, 20 years and a previous millenium ago, and still, predicting human likes and needs seems not to have improved.
