So here once again are the top songs posted on 1000x/minute for the past month. As usual, there’s a mix of electronic, folk, punk, etc. - basically whatever moved me upon hearing it.This is out of the blue, but I’ve been struggling lately with the music I like. Is it too poppy/easy to listen to? There are times I purposely avoid songs/artists because of fear of “twee-ness”, but I guess deep down what I’d really like is to be challenged in my listening to find the true gold. Hm. Thoughts?
