In praise of: The Electric Barometer from Danish Radio

In this era of randomly shuffling through your entire music collection there’s a lot to be said for music selected and playlisted by humans, particularly if that music happens to broadly match your musical tastes.

Det Elektriske Barometer is a digital and internet radio station from the Danish national public broadcaster. They play a mix of new and recent indie rock and pop from America and Europe, dropping in the odd classic from the 80s or 90s now and again too, with no advertising and almost no talking. I’ve been introduced to so much new music over the last couple of years by this station – Danish taxpayers, I thank you!
