Jini's Pick of the Week -

This week I came across this new website that helps me indulge my passion for listening to new music for free. Of course, in this day and age we're bombarded with multiple ways to discover new music from myspace to lastfm, but I really like the simple concept and design of Spotify. Launched in Sweden and now available in the UK, this software download gives the user access to millions of free and legal songs within a simple itunes-esque format. This is a great alternative to online radio stations, and can be downloaded for free with ads or ad-free for a monthly fee.

  1. Another approach to music discovery is 'social music recommendation' based on the psychological perception of music.
    Our new service Music Patterns provides customized playlists based on music that 'People Like You' actually listen to.

    Using a psychology-based approach to music preferences , this method combines your individual preferences with identifying those that are similar to your 'music personality.'

    This new form of social music recommendation was developed from years of research in this area by best selling author Dr. Dan Levitin and our team at Signal Patterns.
