This is an ongoing attempt at a useful flattening of the musical genre-space tracked by Spotify into a simple sortable list.
 
Click any genre to re-sort the list by similarity to that genre.
 
How We Understand Music Genres explains how this thing got started.
A Retromatic History of Music (or Love) follows these genres across years.
The Spotify New-Release Sorting Hat uses them to cluster this week's new releases.
We Built This City On follows them to their cities of origin.
Genres by Country breaks them down by strength of association with countries.
Drunkard's Rock wanders around for a really long time.
The Sounds of Places plots countries as if they were genres.
Every Place at Once is an index of the distinctive listening of individual cities.
Genres in Their Own Words maps genres to words found in their song titles.
The Needle tries to find songs surging towards the edges of one obscurity or another.
The Approaching Worms of Christmas tries to wrap itself around things I usually fight.
