My general strategy for deciding what I like in music in the age of bittorrent is to dump a shitload of music into my phone from an artist I'm interested in and gauge my level of interest through repeat exposure by way of shuffle play. Starting to come around more to X, the band that accidentally made themselves very hard to Google, and Leon Bridges is becoming an artist I skip a lot less frequently

I couldn't listen to "About a Girl" for a long time due to this and there's a Nathaniel Rateliff song I've developed a temporary hatred for since it has a tendency to play every time I start my car.
