You probably already know that recommenders have their own pages that collate all of the recommendations I have from them — there’s a couple of things about these pages that I think are useful that might not be immediately obvious:
If you’re signed in you can save favorite recommenders to your account, there’s a little ‘Save’ button on the upper left there
on the upper right there’s a dropdown, you can filter a big list by category or by genre (or even by whether albums are on Bandcamp or not). This can be useful if you just want to see, say, Phil Freeman’s metal recommendations or Ned Raggett’s ambient recommendations.
If you do filter a list, the little ‘Shfl’ button on the upper right will remember, so if you click it you can just flip through the subset you had selected.
