Here's one for the hipsters. San Francisco-based Forgotify have hit upon a pretty interesting concept.

4 million songs have never been streamed on Spotify. Not once! Aside from being fairly depressing for the artist, it's one hell of an opportunity for us music-obsessives to change this injustice and give the never-heard music of this world a platform.

In my trial run on Forgotify, I heard some music which, it's fair to say, should probably have been consigned to the Forgotify database forever. But I also heard some crackers which deserved far more than zero listens (I'm looking at you, The Stampeders).

Try it for yourself below. You never know, you might just stumble upon someone who becomes your favourite artist- thus making you the hippest of all the hipsters out there.
