Music-streaming services can help you find new artists after giving them suggestions on bands and artists you already like. However, if you want to skip listening until something new plays for you to favorite and look up, try Time Machine on the Hype Machine Web site. The Time Machine feature shows you what was popular over the last five or more years.
Start your music journey by heading to the Time Machine landing page.
Here, you'll find the most popular tracks from last week. But don't stop there; two simple clicks on the year and month that interest you and a list of the most-featured songs will appear. And if you're really feeling adventurous, just tap the Random Week link near the year and month selection.
Many of the tracks will have a play button off to the right-hand side of their entry, but if they don't, a simple YouTube search should do the trick.
You can also share tracks to Facebook or Twitter right from the track list. If you have a Hype Machine account, you can also add the tracks to your favorites if you want to start building a list of new music.
