I rather enjoy Spotify’s “What’s New” section; it happily throws material by artists like Brooke Benton and Brenda Lee, in with the actual new stuff, like the currently ubiquitous Gangnam Style. I suppose a re-release or repackaging of old material technically counts as “new,” but either way, you end up with a wide-ranging selection of music that reminds you that what many people dismissingly refers to as “pop,” is comprised of so very, very much.
