New Releases by Genre

Posted by - 11:56 AM on 01/23/14
Someone online showed this to me (and I forgot your username, I'm sorry), and it's pretty interesting -- it's all of the new releases on Rdio each week placed into genres.
This is an algorithmically-generated categorization of Rdio new releases by genre. The categorization is artist-based, and cheerfully optimisitic, so releases are listed in any genre where some data from somewhere suggests they might conceivably be relevant. Sometimes this will be laughably wrong. Laugh, and move on. Single-song releases are shown with quoted song names; multiple-song releases are shown with italicized release titles.

That fact that someone was able to put all genres on one page is a feat in itself.

Pretty cool. Didn't know "Stoner Metal" was a thing.

if you're not subscribed, then use rdio. i switched without hesitation. i'll re-iterate every chance i get - i find rdio far superior because of organization, design, layout and listening experience. the ads are like every 20 minutes or so and they're only 30 seconds and they're only about the site, nothing else, no third party BS. and there's no other banners anywhere at any time.

Hey that was me that tweeted this link at you. I thought it was pretty cool as well. I had been looking for something like this for awhile. And for anyone not using Rdio, I can't recommend it enough.

I've had subscriptons to both, and I would say that rdio is better primarily because of organization and UI.

As far as not paying, that's kind of lame...

Thank you! Haha, sorry for not remembering -- I tossed the link into Instapaper when you tweeted it at me and forgot to add the source.

Great idea, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

i did for 2 months with spotify just so i didn't have to deal with the ads. i prefer the way their mobile app looks compared to their desktop/web.

why though?

Lol @ filthstep.

I know genres can be whatever they want, but that's just funny.
