Finally gave in, bought NordVPN, my Spotify playlists are now English. Hallelujah. Set up Chrome as my "this is for the U.S. stuff" browser and grabbed the OpenVPN files to throw on my laptop.

After listening to Spotify's generated "Tastebreakers" playlist, I can see why it is referred to it as "genres and artists you don't normally explore". Because this is music I'd never, ever, ever, want to listen to.
