Discovering awesome music never gets old. And that’s the simple idea behind Songspin, a Victoria-based startup that wants users to find new tunes with ease.
Founded in September 2011 by a small team of music enthusiasts, Songspin is dedicated to helping users discover new artists and bands that aren’t mainstream. They curate music from across the web, pulling it together in one place.
Users select a genre of music and can then listen to uninterrupted streams of music. While listening to a song, users can view the artist’s bio, photos, and tour dates. And those who sign up for the service—an optional deed—via Facebook can track their favourite tunes to create handy playlists. It’s most comparable to New York’s Hype Machine.
