Spring is a great time for music discovery. By April, we're typically seeing a steady stream of exciting new releases as artists have dropped new singles and albums in the new year, and are getting ready for festivals and summer touring. The warmer weather also lends itself to sunnier, upbeat tunes that are perfect for businesses looking to engage users in apps. Our Curation Team of music aficionados at Feed Media Group collaborated on this playlist to bring you some of our favorite music discoveries for 2022.

Examining Young Thug’s punk cred from a music curation perspective.
Here at Feed Media Group, curators like myself spend hours listening to music from all genres in search of the perfect songs for our clients. The musical knowledge we share is vast, and for me, a genre that I’m especially in tune with is punk. That’s why when Young Thug announced that his new album was actually going to be called P*nk, for punk, I had to take a closer look.
Kanye West is a big deal. He’ll be the first to tell you so. My favorite Kanye lyric—"Damn, Ye, it'd be stupid to diss you, Even your superficial raps is super-official"—was served up as playful punnery within Late Registration’s “Gone” (2005). These boastful words have proven to be surprisingly prophetic.
With flowers blooming and a new normal starting to emerge, you may be dreaming of travel, preferably somewhere hot, sunny and full of culture.

I’ve cooked up a New Orleans mixtape stuffed with classics and new tunes for both newcomers and connoisseurs to enjoy.

The business/work aspect of life has also been a somewhat conflicted experience, with some businesses thriving while others were knocked down hard.
“We’ve been on the road all day, driving along the coast. The sun is going down and finally so is the temperature — now it’s safe to roll your window down and let the warm breeze of the California dusk flow right in. Turn that radio up and gaze into the purples and pinks of the evening sky.

Isn’t 2020 over yet?? Nope. But we are, finally, nearing the 4th quarter. With the arrival of Labor Day and fall, it might be helpful to take a moment to step back and TAKE CREDIT for how hard we’ve all been working this year. That’s the point of Labor Day right? It’s hard to recall a time when reflecting on one’s work--medical professionals, essential workers, loyal telecommuters, working parents, brave protesters for racial justice, politicians (those actually working to keep us safe and solvent), those unexpectedly working to find a new job, etc.--was more important.
