Hearing the same top 40 songs on the radio all the time gets pretty old pretty quickly. How many times can you listen to Rihanna tell you to work or to Drake telling you that he's too good for you? I love looking through playlists to find new songs and artists that deserve so much more recognition than they get. Some of these artists I've found through social media, some I've found through recommendations from friends, and others are the result of hours and late nights of looking through Spotify's discovery playlists.

I decided to compile some of my favorite songs that I believe deserve so much more recognition than they are getting. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and if you have any music recommendations, let me know in the comments!

(Note: Not all of these songs have music videos, so some are just audios. I guess I'm just THAT hipster.)
