Music 2.0: A Social Music Overview

by oz on February 6, 2007

Since HearYa is all about the discovery and recommendation of great music, we often discuss new music technology that enables our quest to find music to match our unique tastes and share with our friends.

One of my favorite blogs, TechCrunch, just posted an overview of startups (and quasi-startups) in the social music scene. You can click the logos to go straight to the sites. I’ve played around on Last.fm, Pandora, and Radio.Blog.Club before, but some of these are new to me. I’ve written up a long review on Pandora in the past and I just added Radio.Blog to our Listen page last night to start a HearYa playlist.

The companies discussed are listed below. You can visit the Social Music Overview at TechCrunch to read their reviews of each. If you have comments about the others, please let us know.

While I have to object to the use of v. 2.0 (that’s so 2004), I appreciate the links to the services. You see Jobs’s latest comment on DRM? I wonder what a new DRM environment would do to these services and their type.

Check http://boomp3.com, it’s great for artists who just want to share their music.
