Random Music Discovery Game

Today I thought of a random music discovery game, as follows:

Choose a word - any word. Google it, along with 'bandcamp'. Click
until you find some music you like.

I tried it with 'elephant' and got this:


When The Worms Dry Up, The Birds Turn To Ashes, by Elephant was the
first result. I couldn't stop listening to it. It's broadly folk punk,
by turns fragile and violent, occasionally both at once, and it
totally pinned me up against the wall and wouldn't let me stop until
I'd listened to it all.

See what you think. Or choose your own keyword and see what you find.

Please do let me know if you find anything good, and I bet you will.
