In the face of neverending midterms, I find myself doing anything to avoid studying. Bad student? Yes, I am. Anyways…
Move over iTunes Genius, because I’ve found new ways to find cool music and playlists! My fall playlist has been updated, and I’m very happy about that. Here, take a look:
Feeling angsty, but can’t find the right music to cry to? Try Songza, which is a free service which recommends and streams music for you! It’s actually pretty cool— it has a concierge service which can provide you with a carefully crafted playlist depending on your mood! I use it for all sorts of activities; room-cleaning, homework-doing, sleep-going, etc. Songza can also be found in app form for iOS and Android.
2. I JUST WANT TO LISTEN TO THE BEST OF
My friend showed me this one. Type an artist’s or band’s name into the search bar, and the website find their top ten tracks for you! Sometimes, they’re even available to stream. This is great if you’ve just heard of a band and want to hear more!
Now everybody, go listen to Tegan and Sara.
3. YouTube Discovery
It’s basically YouTube and tothebestof.com combined. Stream music videos from your favourite artists in an automatic playlist! Unfortunately, the service tends to give you live videos, so this isn’t really the greatest for straight-up music listening 😛 But this all about procrastinating, isn’t it?
Take note that you need internet connection for all of these services to work! Or you could always do things the old fashioned way and swap iPods with somebody else 🙂 By the way, this is an attempt to start a blog series! Except the episodes/posts won’t come consistently, because I’m inconsistent like that.
