Spin has been around for 25 years, observing and reporting on music and culture, and has seen many bands come and go. They’ve taken a chance on newer names only to see careers blossom into household notoriety. And having shifted from print-only to having a dedicated web arm, we love seeing their musical leanings on Rdio.
Why should you follow Spin Magazine? Because they peg, with fantastic accuracy, the bands, musicians, albums and songs that are worthy of your Heavy Rotation. They’ve spotted now-critically acclaimed bands like Mumford & Sons, Janelle Monáe and Wavves. Their playlists include monthly picks for favorite new music, coverage of things beyond the Internet (like their Must See Fall Tours), and are a great place to check in when you aren’t sure what to listen to next. Their collection is full of utterly-listenable and fun music. Who wouldn’t want to see Spin in their Network’s Recent Activity?
