Discovering new music that isn’t mainstream can be a difficult and time consuming process. With so much music being available on streaming platforms like Spotify or Apple Music, a lot of talented artists can go unnoticed. To discover new music, Junior Caleb Thompson has recently developed a hobby of listening to a brand new album each day. Thompson discovers albums to listen to through his own research and from recommendations from his peers. In the past few months, Thompson has also decided to review the albums he listens to on his Snapchat story.

“I really love music and I found myself always looking for new things to listen to,” Thompson said. “To discover new music, I thought it would be fun to listen to one new album a day so I could find more artists to listen to. One day a friend of mine said I [should] just post reviews to the albums I listened to so I decided to start posting reviews on my Snapchat story.”

Thompsons music reviews always have a part of his wit and charm in them. Thompson will sometimes tell a funny story about the album he listened to or will make jokes about the album to make his reviews stand out. His friends always look forward to seeing his new stories as even people who aren’t interested in the album itself will be entertained by Thompsons reviews.

“When Caleb reviews the music he listens to it really encapsulates his personality,” junior Delaney St. John said. “He’s just a really goofy guy and I look forward to seeing all of his funny music reviews he posts.”

To track all of the albums he’s listened to, Thompson uses an app called Discog. So far Thompson has listened to 193 albums. Music is something Thompson is passionate about and he plans on discovering as many artists and new songs for his playlist as he can.

“I love music and reviewing and tracking my collection is just a really fun thing to do,” Thompson said. “It’s just super fun finding brand new artists to listen to.”
