Expanding musical horizons? Watch

    If I wanted to expand my music, I would do it not too radically, i.e. I would buy albums from artists which have high similarity to the ones I like.

    I would advise Scrobbler to link an iTunes playlist and a Last.fm account. It recommends some great artists and is the best artificial recommender I have come across.

    Friends have also been a big help but they like very similar artists.

    Here are my recommendations to start off:

    The Smiths
    Joy Division
    The Cure
    Foals
    The xx
    The Strokes
    Crystal Castles
    Everything Everything
    Metronomy
