There’s no shortage of streaming music services around, that’s for sure, from mega services like Spotify and Pandora to ’please don’t sue us any more’ upstarts Grooveshark, so there’s obviously a demand out there for this stuff. Whoever it was that said streaming is the new radio is probably not far from the truth, although I suspect that most of the smaller services spend a good deal of time looking over their shoulder at either the RIAA legal activities or YouTube viewing figures.
Which means it’s always nice to see something new hit the streets, and Songspin looks like a nice addition to the streaming music scene. The service is really an aggregator of music from various places on the Net, including Last.fm, Hype Machine and of course Soundcloud. The result is a nicely presented catalog of cool tracks from a great range of artists, all available for free streaming and in most cases download. You can also buy the tracks from Amazon directly from the artist page, which is even neater.
There’s tour dates, photos, favourites and search also included so it’s no slouch on the feature front, and as I said I like the clean simple interface. Click and listen, lovely.
It’s “all killer, no filler”. Every song has been identified by tastemakers as something worth hearing. Because our stations are updated each day with the best music on the web, you’ll hear something new each time you tune in. And you’ll love it.
