Hi everyone, this is Ysabel from Musiio. Kicking where Hazel left off and serving up Indie Rock this time!
Indie Rock, an umbrella genre that is identified more by its ethos than a musical approach, is one that is not easily - or can be - objectively identifiable by ear. In making music that suits their personal taste more than selling records (a major label thing), Indie bands exploit that freedom to explore sounds, emotions and subjects that can have limited appeal to the mainstream audience. Music that may seem too whimsical, too melancholic, too delicate, too raw, too abrasive for the general public, yet balancing these leanings with a pop sensibility.
With the ever-growing list of subgenres and styles, the right question here is then - How do you like your Indie? Personally I’m big on garage-influenced Crumbsnatchers and Night Beats, and new wave artists a la Single Bullet Theory.
Share your favourite indie style by commenting on this post!

We are back once again with another genre and another playlist. Our A.I. is working hard everyday to create colourful and helpful playlists.
Excitingly, we limited this one to the newer material from the FMA, to see what gems we could find. Don't get me wrong I love a classic, but I was curious to see what difference searching a new segment of the database made. See what you think!
Comment on the post and let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions on what genres you would like to hear next!

Hey everybody, it's playlist time again!
Some genres aren't as abundant as others; music can often get released in waves and be governed by taste and trends.
One such genre in the FMA is Deep Funk. Recognisable here by its strong basslines, often soulful vocals and laid-back swing pattern of drumming, it can be harder compared to other genres to find modern funk tracks in the FMA catalogue.
The roots of the genre can be traced back to the mid-60s and can be heard influencing many modern top 40 chart hits, but today I wanted to present you with something quite special, a slightly shorter playlist than usual from Musiio - but I think these tracks are just waiting to be heard.
I'm particularly enamoured with track 5 by Ava Luna which starts with an incredible acapella section. And look out for track 4, Luce Lutu '623am' it definitely sways heavily into the trap and soul genres, but I love the sonic recognition across the blending genres.

Welcome to the Americana edition of AI playlists by Musiio!
Today our 'seed' track is the awesome Bob Wiseman's 'In Her Dream' - now usually I pick the seed track and the AI suggests the rest... however the Wiseman track was actually chosen by an earlier version of our AI as a companion to the Kurt Vile seed track from Playlist 1. So in reality I had even less of a hand in this than usual, but I love the way tracks lead to other tracks and playlists break off into different genres - so I couldn't help but follow where it went!
I am a huge fan of the Americana genre. I used to be a regular down the front of shows at Corridor Bar, The Basement, The Union, and numerous other great bars in Sydney, Australia that are at the core of great Australian made Americana, which has dominated the local scene for the last 5 years. These playlisted artists are from the U.S., Russia, and all over - this genre has global appeal.
Enjoy this new playlist of ten tracks all taken from the FMA.

Let's get weird.
This week we will be looking at another AI generated playlist built by Musiio for the FMA.
For our second playlist we wanted to do something different. Our first playlist was smack-bang in the middle of the indie-folk genre, for our second playlist we wanted to demonstrate variety by moving into the electronica space.
If you look at the categories that make up the music collection on the FMA a large portion of it is Rock, Indie and Pop. One of the next biggest categories is Electronic.
This new playlist was generated using a 'seed' track. In this case track one of the playlist called Capture Me Burning selected by myself. We drop the 'seed' track into our AI and let it choose it's 9 friends for the playlist.
There is one of our most varied playlists, with everything from Electro-Synth across to Minimal Tech and a little bit of Industrial thrown in - but I think it all sits together nicely.
Once again I was delighted to be introduced to artists I wasn't aware of pre-playlisting.
