How do kids these days find new music that isn’t super mainstream? I think I’m out of touch because I have no idea. Radio is kind of unlistenable any more and anyway I don’t know of local Denver stations that are really on the cutting edge of new music.
Like with most things, when it comes to music, I rely on Ben and the internet. Sometimes the internet takes me to strange places, which is what happened this weekend when I discovered the world of space disco. Did you know about space disco? It’s a thing! It’s pretty fantastic.
Based on my metaphorical travels, I put together a little playlist for you. There are a few songs I already had, plus some songs from Ben and some obscure new stuff from spacediscoland. I bet they wear awesome shoes in spacediscoland. Enjoy your trip!

You can listen to the whole playlist here. I’m having a hell of a time with Grooveshark widgets these days (I’ve figured out how to get a single song widget to work but can’t get a playlist to work — the code they give you to copy and paste has something wrong with it); if I can get the widget working, I’ll post it here.
