Live concerts, gigs and festivals are out, but the need to feel transported to somewhere more beautiful via melodies, lyrics and rhythms has rarely been felt more keenly. In short, music has never been in greater demand. Whether you're after a selection of sounds to help you get a good night's sleep , tunes to entertain children at home or a selection of inspiring albums written in self-isolation , heading down to your local record shop and rifling through crates is off-menu right now. These offer a lockdown-approved lifeline at the click of a button — a chance to test-drive new tracks and try sounds before you buy. Spotify isn't our reigning champion when it comes to value, variety and audio quality, but its popularity and accessibility is undeniable. And the firm recently offered support for charities helping musicians during lockdown , as well as giving Spotify account-holders a chance to 'tip' acts while listening, too. If you've ever used Spotify, you'll know that typing 'new music' into the search bar will yield a selection of curated mainstream newness from the likes of Lady Gaga, Ella Eyre, Jake Bugg and Stormzy, and New Music Friday UK is always a good playlist shout here but what if you're looking for something a bit different? That's where we come in. Why not lend your and ear to a few of these slightly more niche curated playlists?
