But it’s always nice to get into a situation where you can share music among real people than just have to rely on some algorithms. This brings me to a new site called StayHomeAndListen. Here’s a screenshot.

I did some browsing through the site and found a lot of stuff that’s so far escaped my attention. And the best news is that it’s all Canadian stuff.
