Atlanta Named #1 Music Tastemaker

Atlantans know what’s cool in music before everyone else does, at least according to researchers Conrad Lee and Padraig Cunningham. The pair analyzed playlists from last.fm since 2003 and compiled their findings in a research paper titled “The Geographic Flow of Music.” “In North America, Atlanta was the leader in predicting overall music trends as well as hip-hop trends, while Montreal was the clear indie music frontrunner.”
