Music Machinery Blog Posts “The Deepest Artists” List

From Paul Lamere’s MUSIC MACHINERY BLOG: “But what should we listen to when we want a full and nutritious musical meal?  We should look for music by artists that have deeper catalogs – artists where the fans spend substantial time listening to the non-hits. These are the Deep Artists, the opposite of the One Hit Wonders – the artists that you can spend months or years listening to and exploring their collection.”

The Deepest Artists List can be found at http://static.echonest.com/demo/deep_artists.html
