Five Things #131

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. According to Spotify's end of year stats, in 2018 I listened to 33,152 minutes of music, 75% of which was "non-mainstream" (compared to the average listener) and my most played artists were: Nils Frahm, Poppy Ackroyd, Radiohead, Metric and Ólafur Arnalds. Here are my most played 100 songs from the last year, be warned it's not the most musically cohesive playlist! If you're a Spotify user you can check out your end of year stats at

  2. A fascinating piece with a great title: A Yacht, a Monet, a See-Through Piano: The U.S. Collects on a Fugitive’s Shopping Spree

  3. How the hyperlink changed everything — I really like TED's Small Thing Big Idea series that this video is a part of.

  4. Advice everyone should follow: If you have work to do, hide your phone!

  5. 🎧 Jean-Michel Blais' album II (Deluxe) has been getting a lot of play at Farley HQ in the last week. It's a beautiful album. If you only have time to listen to one track, I'd recommend Nostos.
