Shuffler is a brand new (in public Alpha release today) music streaming service that delivers categories of music via music blogs. Just select the music type you like (e.g. indie, hip-hop, folk etc) and you’ll be transported to a selection of music blogs via an on-screen player. They’re saying it’s like Pandora for music blogs, and we’d agree. It’s definitely a very cool idea and worth checking out.
The only caveat is you should ensure you’ve got a good anti-virus package installed, as you may find, as I did, that a blog has a malware exploit on it, which can be a little disturbing. But it’s early days and I’m sure the idea has legs. Nice.
