Happy Tuesday, Web dwellers. Please tear your eyes away from the farms and the birds and the Instagrammed snapshots of kittens for this brief interruption: A healthy roundup of music & tech news from around the web. Your stupor may resume after this message.
Last year, Facebook announced that it would have deeper integration with music services like Spotify thanks to its new social graph. Now, it’s taking that integration even deeper with a new feature it’s calling “Listen With.”
That day of epic gorging is just around the corner, and before we sink into a haze of tryptophan and family-imposed depression, we decided to reflect back on this year in music tech and share those innovations we’re more thankful for.
