Today’s discovery – Musicovery – Play your mood

    • Device : Iphone – web
    • Price : $10.99 / 3 months
    • Country : France
    • Data-base : streamed
    • Link : http://musicovery.com/

Musicovery is a customised webradio service. It’s like Pandora/Last.Fm. The user interface may seem strange at first but just click wherever you want on the moodmap to generate a new webradio. Initial choices are based on the type of music you want to listen to (rap, jazz, funk, rock, …) and when it was recorded (1950 to 2007).

Founders had included a graphic discovery engine that they also created – Liveplasma Technology – which lets users navigate on a musical map depending on their tastes.
Web service is more interesting than the Iphone app where all those features are not available.

 

+  Filtering by genre, date and mood
++  Create your musical mindmap and share it as a widget on a social network or a website
-  Interface is not intuitive, it takes a while to understand how the service works
–  The Iphone app only works with the user’s music database

 

Thanks to Musicovery I discover Quantic with the song Un canto a mi terra

Today’s Discovery – Last.fm Discover : 2 million tracks from emerging artists

  • Device : web
  • Country : USA
  • Link : http://www.last.fm/discover#
  • Data Base : Owned

The discovery of online music is always limited to groups who sell more albums, which are the most used and therefore most referenced on the web. As a result, we always find the same artists who monopolize the cyber scene. Difficult in this context to still be surprised by searching online.
Only few site which highlight groups from a little known or emerging indie scene exist, so it’s worth noting the initiative of last.Fm with his discovery engine Last.FM Discover.
You will not be inundated by the headliners since have simply been removed to make room for those who often find it difficult to make themselves known. Under these conditions, it is easier to start to discover hidden talents.

 

You will find headings as strange that :

Blacker than the blackest black times infinity

Fuckin Awesome

Renato Ventura saids bravo

… and much more

 

Try out this musical field dedicated to indie bands !

Midomi (SoundHound)

Midomi iPhone
 

  • Device : iPhone  – iPad  –  web
  • Price : Free

It’s the 80′s, cramped in the back seat of my parents’ car, I hear an awesome song on the radio. Lost in the moment and being eight years old, I didn’t pay  attention to the title or the singer, but the melody has stuck with me for years. Once in awhile, the memories of the song would come back to haunt me.

 

As a adult, I was on a mission. I looked a little silly humming that song to anyone old enough to maybe have heard it. Of course no one recognized it, until one day, a friend installed Midomi on her iPhone which put an end to years of fruitless Youtube searching! Richard Marx, I’ve been looking for you for so long! Chances are, this probably has happened to you too.

 

The team at Melodis have created Midomi a free iPhone app that enables you to identify an artist, song, lyrics and even Youtube videos related to your musical search. The app is easy to use, you just have to press on the SoundHound button. If the song is playing, try to minimise background noise and SoundHound takes  10 seconds or less to identify the song playing. If you’re like me and only have your memory as a reference, you’ll be suprised how quickly SoundHound finds your song based on your humming. Don’t be scared, you don’t have to be a skillful singer, trust me…

 

With an option called SaySearch, you can say the name of the title or artist and it will be displayed instantly.  There’s also TypeSearch that does the same thing, but you type it down instead of saying it. What is great with Midomi is that you can bookmark the song you found and share it with your friends via social networking. It also gives you the possibility to buy the song on iTunes.

 

Unlike Shazam, which doesn’t recognize your awful singing, Midomi is great in that it understands what you’re trying to hum. Midomi is a free app for the iPhone, and it’s a great way to figure out who made that mysterious song you like.
