    Sometimes a Pandora station.

    Sometimes a random artist or song on Spotify as I think of it.

    Sometimes I put a song into YouTube and let their algorithm take me places.

    I usually listen to music when I grill so I’ll either use a playlist I’ve created or depending on mood/what I feel like listening to I’ll follow a genre or sub-genre. Other day I listen to jazz inspired hip hop. Sometimes I just flip around and play whatever comes up.

    This with Spotify playlists, especially Release Radar, Discover Weekly, and the Daily Mixes they have. Then some artist's radio if I'm looking for certain vibes.

    self made playlists when I'm getting hype or celebrating or something

    shuffle a giant selection of songs from my library when I feel like drunkenly barraging the what you're currently listening to thread

    I stream KEXP while in the office, NPR News while driving around town, and listen to DL’d This American Life episodes on road trips.

    If I’m not digging the DJ that’s on KEXP and have already exhausted some previous catalogues, I have a massive random playlist of my own, and also like to flip on Motown, RS top 500, jazz, world music playlists and such that others have put together.

    I create a lot of playlists and forget most of them but then still listen to some of them too.

    Then I just either shuffle Willie Nelson’s entire catalog or a playlist of the best 500 albums of the 2010s that keeps me young.

    A little bit of all of it really.

    Albums. Random picked artist and listen to their current top 5 on Spotify. Sometimes beyond the 5.

    I pick random songs as well. Get in a grove and think of a good song that would follow suit. Just keep the train going.

    This is the answer. I think it'd be weird as fuck to not listen to music in almost all of those ways. I'll go to an artist on Spotify and hit shuffle. Or do an artist "radio." But sometimes you got to hear a particular song and I hit YouTube. Or put on a show. Or just tune into the radio on a driveway. My friend group started building a Playlist of 90s-00s bangers. What kind of sociopath thinks you only listen to music one way.

    A woman who I used to be friends with has some music on Spotify, I became obsessed with one of her songs for like a month, in the end of the year rewind it said I was in the top .1% of her fans. I hope to god artists can’t see the names of their top listeners.

    I almost exclusively listen to albums at a time. I also listen to 95% metal and that’s definitely the way that subculture consumes music. I also keep a list of new bands and/or albums on my phone that I want to check out next.
