Music as Makeshift Therapy: Alt Rock / Rock Edition

Music is one of my mainstays for coping with chronic pain and chronic illness. I love music and I love looking for new songs and bands to listen to. Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of the Last.fm. After plugging in a bunch of my favorite bands and songs it seems to get better and better all the time at finding new music for me to explore and finding songs I liked in the past but had totally forgotten about. I like Pandora pretty well, but I feel like Last.fm has been a bit better at giving me the mix of tunes I’m looking for. You can follow me here on Last.fm: whatwouldruthdo.
