Music discovery service: TuneGlue

You can't listen to new artists you find, but it brings up some surprising and intriguing results.

TuneGlue Helps You Find New Tunes You'd Like by Mapping Music Connections - music discovery - Lifehacker
You start building a web by searching for an artist. In our sample web above we started with Iggy Pop. When you click on your first node, you can perform a variety of actions with the node but the most important action is expanding the node. Expanding adds more nodes to the web, spun off of the node you expanded. By expanding nodes you can generate connections between artists based on listening patterns. Iggy Pop, for example, links to The Stooge which in turn links to the New York Dolls. Curious how we got from Iggy Pop to Garbage? We went from Iggy Pop through Patti Smith -> PJ Harvey -> Tori Amos -> Alanis Morissette -> The Cranberries -> Garbage.
