    The youtube algorithms are pretty good for weirdo shit - if you're listening to some obscure ambient or minimalist stuff they almost always line up something sweet after it for you - I've come across some essential albums via this method which have stayed with me...

    These are my latest discoveries:

    Pickman's model Every man and every woman is a star





    i thought for ages that corelli had come up with that by himself then i found out that the folia theme was played with by composers for hundreds of years:

    oddly enough I just came across this (great) album through other means, and it turns out Midori Takada played mallets on it.

    I've discovered loads of brilliant new music through autoplaying youtube (or otherwise flicking through the recommendations down the side).

    It was a youtube adventure that led me to discover Latin Soul

    And before that I got obsessed over the 2010s French pop that I discovered on another youtube odyssey:

    Hypnolove - La piscine
    Cléa Vincent - Jmy attendais pas
    Polo & Pan - Dorothy
    L'Impératrice — Agitations Tropicales
    Le Couleur - Club Italien
    Février - La montagne
    Vendredi sur Mer - La Femme à la Peau Bleue

    I've discovered amazing soukous, naija pop and cold wave.

    And if I like it, I'll buy it and play it on a proper stereo (at the proper volume if the kids are out).

    That Midoro Takada album is a thing of beauty.

    I have wondered if there was a thread to be done detailing where you started from on YouTube and where you ended up, because I often follow the odd suggestions at the end of a play. In fact I may have started such a thread, but if I did, it didn't become that great.

    the stuff I end up liking the most is generally well out of my price range...

    I knew some of this sound track before but this popped up on another video.
    This is from 'Synecdoche New York.'

    PS I love the Corelli above

    I tend to find great tracks through YouTube auto play

    And then head over to Discogs to find it'll set me back £150 for a copy

    yeah, that's stopped bothering me too much though. If I want to listen to it I can always play it on youtube.

    always good funky 70s 45 rips on youtube that are out of print unlike the edm shite that masquerades as turkish pop these days.

    Aye! I know very little about ambient music so I'm never sure if it's some random youtube algorithm gem or a proper classic.

    why does so much japanese music come up for everyone? anyway I'm very glad this came up for me, it is absolutely incredible, like beautiful melancholic perfect synth pop, but completely crazy and abstract as well.

    ohh that album is on this blog too... I'm pretty sure it was youtube that showed it to me, but maybe that blog is big enough that it now affects the youtube algorhythm or someyhing?

    Could be, I guess it works on what people who're into one thing search for next?

    This smooth as jazz funk (Japanese again) has been on a bit lately. From autoplay.
