Just put up the 2013 top 5s of some of my/DiS' favourite bands http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4147219-our-favourite-musicians-five-favourite-albums-of-2013
Got me thinking, which musicians do you trust the taste of? And have you got any good examples of how you got into music through an artist recommending them? Seems with social media that perhaps too few bands use their position to turn people on to music, and a lot of the ones who do share music in my feed are often sharing BIG things or so much small stuff that it's hard to keep up.
I thought it was great that Nick Cave & The Badseeds took Sharon Van Etten out on tour earlier this year, can imagine a lot of people who'd never heard her stuff before became obsessed with her after that show.
