While Spotify’s Discover Weekly and Release Radar playlists are great for finding new songs to listen to, nothing compares to swapping a record or two with a good friend. There is something to sharing musical experiences with people as opposed to finding music shot out of an algorithm.

So I went out on a quest — a quest to find some cool music CB students and teachers are listening to. The coolest part? All songs are in a Spotify playlist that is linked at the bottom of the page. Happy listening!
