Harness the music discovery power of Hype Machine, the site that monitors a multitude of music blogs to, and enjoy an “easy, simple and beautiful” music listening experience right on your desktop.
This past April Hypegram launched a Windows-only app that monitors tons of music blogs and to deliver hot and exciting new music right on your desktop. With so much new music being produced these days it’s hard to keep track of all the emerging bands, let alone having the time to sort through all of their albums for usually that one sing that really gets you going.
“Listen to the greatest popular music on the web right now with our popular, latest and top Twitter playlists, or just search for your favourite tracks!” says the company. “Hype Machine handpicks a set of kickass music blogs which offer the most incredible music and commentary anywhere in the world.”
Much like the regular Hype Machine site you can browse by popular, latest, most loved, subscribed, and by tweets on Twitter.
Don’t see anything you like? Search for a familiar artist or maybe one you’ve heard about from a friend. Still nothing? Search by genre.
“Hypegram offers the best browsing experience for Hype Machine, hands down. The app presents your favourite tracks in a beautiful black leather interface which makes finding amazing new music more fun than ever,” adds Hypegram.
Users can also interact with songs they like. By selecting the heart icon your followers and you can keep track of what songs you like and promote it in Hype Machine’s “Loved” feature that lists what people love most; the cloud icon allows you to read the article on the blog where the song was found; the shopping cart allows you to buy the song in iTunes (not available in Windows version); and the bird icon is for tweeting about the song to let others know what you’ve found.
Now Hypegram will set you back $4.99, but it’ll pay for itself in the first few days of use. I mean you can’t even buy a movie ticket for $4.99 right?
