In light of this I had been spending a lot of time listening to SeeqPod. Seeqpod allowed you to search and then stream any and all music ever recorded and stuck online. It was amazing. You could create playlists of stuff you liked, save them, and share a link to them on Twitter or wherever.
Over the weekend Seeqpod stopped working. I am sad. I’ve heard they might be trying to sell their music search technology to the record companies instead of being sued of existence by them.
Here’s some rad sites and services I’ve discovered today as I look for a new place to get rad music, from any machine in the world, anytime I want it…
Hype Machine – Mashup of music blogging and tastemaking with streaming of the songs people are writing about and favoriting. Music hipster online hangout.
8Tracks – make streaming online mixes of other peoples music and share them easily around the web. “8tracks is a simple way for people to create or listen to a mix, a short playlist containing at least 30 minutes â€” roughly 8 tracks â€” of music. “
GrooveShark – Fancy streaming and sharing web application. The founders are on Twitter. Their site crashed my browser. *whine*
Songza – Music Search Engine and Internet Jukebox
FavTape – Lotsa lotsa music to stream online. Super lightweight and sexy interface. Love their Top Lists. iTunes Top 100, 2009 Top 100, etc.
FoxyTunes – search and streaming embedded into a browser plugin for Firefox. I try to keep my Firefox plugin free.
Musicovery – Music discovery app that stream on your mobile device. Concept is cool but it needs some love!
