The Spotties: Nominees for Best News or Music Finder Site

Over the past month, we’ve been looking at each category in turn to spotlight the nominated sites and apps in The Spotties, the Spotify Community Site Awards. Finally we come now to the last category, and one that features many of my favourite Spotify-related websites: here are the nominees for the Best News or Music Finder Site, a category that contains blogs and sites aimed at spreading the Spotify word and helping people discover new music.

Are You Spotified?

Are You Spotified specializes in club music, with frequent posts on new dance and house releases on Spotify. There’s also a Spotify Tips & Tricks section and a playlist area where site-owner Elias and the Are You Spotified team post their popular Clubified and Club Weekend playlists.


Best of the Worst of Spotify

The Best of the Worst of Spotify is a blog that “aims to collect together some of the most horrendous albums ever produced and then made available via Spotify.” The music may be awful, but blogger azc’s sense of humour makes this the funniest Spotify site around!



Indiefy is a blog dedicated to indie pop, jangle pop, shoegaze, and post punk albums on Spotify. It provides lots of indie playlists as well as a Spotify-linked archive of Festive 50s, a set of playlists based on the annual John Peel Festive 50 from BBC Radio 1.


On The Spot

Eardrums is a popular team-written music blog with a focus on new alternative music. Spin-off site On The Spot is a dedicated Spotify version, with updates supplied via Twitter.



Spotify isn’t only about music, as is evident on SpotiNotes: a Spotify blog about the spoken word. Including posts about interviews, audiobooks, travel guides and comedy on Spotify, SpotiNotes is proof of the depth of Spotify’s catalogue and a great read too.


Spotify Technology Progress

Fredrik Kjell’s blog features Spotify news, views, and posts on upcoming hardware and software related to Spotify. Recent stories include a feature on a Spotify iPhone remote, how to run Spotify on Nokia N900s, and a look at a fan project to run Spotify on XBMC (Xbox Media Center).



Written by published author (and beer fan) Paul Brown, Spotiguide is the newest site nominated here. With frequent updates, Spotiguide‘s mix of news, reviews, tips and tools is fast-becoming an essential Spotify resource for both new and experienced Spotify users.



Spotinews is the original Spotify-related website and it tirelessly continues to provide daily updates on what’s new on Spotify. All genres are represented, and each post includes good-sized album art and Spotify links to start listening.



Spotmylist is a Norwegian site that posts Spotify-related news, reviews, and opinion. It’s also a great resource hub, with sections on tips and tricks, playlists, resources, and charts. There’s even a section on audiobooks, focusing on Scandinavian spoken-word albums on Spotify for listeners young and old.


Spotify Classical Playlists

Spotify Classical Playlists is a blog dedicated to classical and orchestral music on Spotify. As well as highlighting new classical releases on Spotify, editor Ulysses also posts special features and playlists, such as “Classical Goes Jazz,” “The Spotify Chopin Bicentennial Playlist,” and “Spotify Classic Albums For Valentine’s Day.”
