Guardian's History of Modern Music Playlists (bonus mammoth included)

"This was the week we tried to map out the entire story of contemporary music using nothing but blood, sweat and a fancy interactive gizmo"

Have you seen the Guardian's A History of Modern Music feature?
It's a gigantic series of articles, interactive timelines and playlists, published this week. They divided it in seven chapters, one for genre (pop, rock, hip hop & r'n'b, indie, dance, world & folk, jazz) and the first thing I thought when I saw it was: great! I will make some Spotify playlists that you can listen while reading the articles!

The second thing I thought, it was: oh, God, they already did it. Yes, each genre has an official playlist, on the Guardian Spotify account.

Then, it came the third thought: this is in pure Spotirama spirit! (yes, I have a Spotiramacentric vision of the world). I must link the playlists!

And so it is: below you find all the direct links to Guardian's playlist. The order is by subscribers (counted the 17/6/2011, 23:48, Berlin Meridian Time), just to get aknowledgement of the big love of Spotirama users for indie music. And at the bottom, a little big bonus messy playlist that Guardian guys didn't make. Enjoy!
