Best apps for finding new music

Culture
What's up, guys? Brian Tong here with CNET.com. And one of the best things about music is discovering new artist or new songs. So, what we wanted to do is show you some of the best music streaming services to help you out. Now first up, if you're talking about simple discovery, you've got to go with Pandora. This is a service that's available on your desktop, tablets or phones, and what it allows you to do is enter in whether it's an artist or a genre you like. It creates a station and then from there, it builds a list of songs that you can listen to. Now if you're looking for a more robust music service, you've got to check out Spotify. This is a free desktop application that incorporates your existing music collection and also lets you stream music at the same time. It also has this unique social hooks, so what you can do is find out music that your friends listen to, and then discover music through them, so this makes it really a big community experience. Now they also offer an unlimited music experience that cost $4.99 if you don't wanna hear any ads at all. But then if you wanna jump up to the premium version, that's $9.99 and it allows you to download your music to your tablets, to your phones, and then take them wherever you go and listen to music offline, so you won't need an internet connection. And let's throw out one that you probably haven't heard of. You guys, I know you're tired of hearing the same 10 songs playing over and over on the radio, so check out this website, it's called Beastmode.fm and it also works on mobile devices. And what they do is they take music that's been published on blogs, immediately sucks them into the service and then streams them to you, so you can surf for new genres and new artist, and really this is one of my favorite sites to find new music that I just haven't heard before. So there you go, we know there's a lot more music services out there like Rdio and Last.fm, but those are a few of our favorite picks. For CNET.com, I'm Brian Tong.
