Internet Radio on Steroids
Thesixtyone.com features independent music, newly signed bands, and bands you might not hear on the radio. Sorry, no Backstreet Boys here.
Make a profile and try to rack up points by “bumping” good songs early, referring people, and listening to “the rack”. Thesixtyone.com encourages a lot of interaction between bands and listeners. Many of the bands give away their music for free and allow you to download as you listen. Others provide a link so you can buy it. To say the least thesixtyone is an indie music paradise.
With super simple sign up you’ll be listening to music in no time with Deezer. Create you own playlist or have Deezer suggest new songs based on songs you’ve suggested.
Pandora will suggest new music based on their users listening habits. A huge database drives the listening experience. As you listen you teach Pandora about your tastes. It learns your unique preferences and makes new recommendations. It is scary how good Pandora is at picky music you like. It’s awesome.
