Boing Boing: A guy accidentaly made a gigantic repository of niche music

Boing Boing: A guy accidentaly made a gigantic repository of niche music. “A decade ago, when Spotify was two years old in the UK and had just become available in the US, Chris Johnson started a musical discovery project called TAPEFEAR. He ‘created a script to find new music on niche music sites, cross reference Spotify to see if it was available to stream,’ according to a Reddit post, and besides a bit of occasional tinkering, he largely forgot about it. In total, Johnson says the script ran for a decade amassing 42,000 songs.”
