Discovering New Music

Two cool ways to discover new music -

1. Pandora - analyzes music down to it's basic traits (i.e. rhythmic syncopation, vamping, vocal harmonies) . By playing songs and asking for your "thumbs up/thumbs down" it tries to adapt to your musical taste (correlating traits) and automatically creates a personalized online radio station. Relevant Slashdot discussions can be found here and here.

2. Last.FM - uses a social approach to the same problem. By joining a community and logging the music you hear, LastFM can correlate your preferences with other community members and use their playlist to suggest new songs you may enjoy.

Enjoy your music... !
