If you’ve been checking out Music Riot for a while you’ll probably realise that we don’t just tell you about one type of music. If it comes in for review we cover it, whichever genre it belongs to. If you like that approach, then watch out for our new feature “Closet Classics”.
It’s all about those albums in our collections that we love but everyone else hates or no-one else has ever heard of. The albums that we loved the first time we heard them, the albums that we play when we’re trying to impress with our musical eclecticism or just to show that we know more about music than everyone else. Those albums usually have a story to accompany them and we’re going to reveal the innermost depths of our music collections to you; but it’s not just a one-way street.
As an added bonus, we’re also going interactive with this one. First of all, we’re giving you links to the featured albums so that one click takes you to the featured songs. We’re doing this through Spotify, which you can download free here:
The second bit of interactivity is that we want you to tell us about your own closet classics. Send us your thoughts about your guilty pleasure on CD or vinyl and we’ll publish as many of them as we can on MusicRiot with links to live streaming from Spotify. We want to hear about the music, but it would be great to know about any personal associations that the album has for you as well.
Watch out for more details on how to tell the world about your closet classics.
