Last year, YouTube vlogger Connor Franta curated a compilation album, ‘Crown, Vol. 1’, which did pretty well on the iTunes charts. Well enough to spawn a second one, anyway: ‘Common Culture’ was released yesterday, with Franta promising that its 12 songs will “offer fresh voices and new perspectives on music… 

Whether it’s pop, country, folk or indie rock, it doesn’t matter; as a species we’ve gathered around music for generations”. The artists include the likes of Handsome Ghost Sam Sure, Wildcat! Wildcat! and Panama Wedding, and the $9.99 album is already sparking rapturous iTunes Store reviews from Franta’s fanbase (“This is literally the music of the future!!!”). A reminder, perhaps, that YouTubers – not just established music artists and DJs – may have a role to play in music curation in the coming years.
