One Album per Day Spotify

One Album per Day. Volume 2 (13-24)

Readers of this blog who follow me on Twitter already know that I got into the habit, on almost every morning, to propose an album selected among those released in the recent past, of which I also provide the link to Spotify and a very short introductory note, short enough to fit into the 280 characters of the tweet. This started because I spend a lot of time browsing into the music released in the past years and sometimes I meet (or discover) something particularly interesting and meaningful. I wanted to find a way to keep track for myself of these valuable albums and soon I started writing down the links to these albums and, for each one, just a few brief sentences for helping me remember what caught my attention and why I thought it was important to keep the memory of that particular album. At some point I thought it could be nice to share these notes with my small group of followers, and from the reactions I recorded so far there are many of them who appreciate my daily posts with the “Album of the Day”.

The first dozen of selected albums is available here. In this post I collect the second group of records. As usual, take this list as a potential inspiration for putting something new on your music player. Enjoy!
