Do you like to discover new music? Sure you do, we all do. Nobody
knows how long you can still go on with the same old playlists, and
there’s new exciting stuff out there every day.
The internet has
had some significant development in the area of music reccomendation
services – with the advent of social media and Web 2.0, it’s never been
easier or more fun. Here are 17 places I like to hunt for new music.
1. iTunes Store “Just For You”
I buy my music legally off iTunes. And iTunes has a great “Just For
You” box that shows music you might like based on what you’ve bought.
Probably the most costly way to get precise recommendations, but always
worth a look.
2. MusicIP Playground
is not only our revered and dearly beloved sponsor, but also has a nice
feature called “Playground”, that let’s you explore albums in a cloud
style and see related albums. Not all tracks found are playable, but
it’s still a nice doodle to explore.
3. 52 Bands
Bands is a b5media Music blog that presents a new upcoming artist every

the recommendations at a gentle pace, calmly intrugg classic argyle
