Looking for new music?

October 17, 2006

If you like to listen to music on your computer but don’t feel like being bothered by making playlists and are unimpressed by internet radio stations, you should check out Pandora. It is an internet radio station that integrates your likes and dislikes. You create different stations based on an artist or song and it searches the Music Genome Project database for similar-sounding music. Then you can give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. The more you do this, the more it refines that particular station. I’ve had it going for a few months, have about 10 different stations, and it does a decent job of picking music for that station.

The best part is that it will choose a lot of unknown artists. It searches for similar music based solely on the music…not the number of records sold, popularity, appearances on TV, corporate sponsorship, etc. I’ve found some bands i’ve never heard of but really like now. If a song/artist comes up that you really like you can simply click ‘save to favorites’ and then later on, when you have time, find out more.

Check it out.
