Music Map

SystemSystem Posts: 8,653 Staff Team
Think of bands and artists who you are keen on, plug it into Music Map, and the site will provide you with recommendations that are regarded as being similar to your choosings. For example, if you enter Freakpower, you will be offered Jamiroquai in close proximity. Freakpower will appear in the centre of the display. Located around Freakpower are the suggested bands, looks rather like a brainstorm (or 'mindmap' before the PC brigade hires a hit-man to kill me!) The further away the groups are from the centre, the less relevant the music is to Freakpower. Try it for yourself!

This example is for Wagon Christ:

Or just visit www.music-map.com to start from the beginning. Hope it helps :-)

    That is actually total bollocks.

    I just put in Metallica, fairly obvious one.

    Closest band?




    Muse.


    Yet I put in Megadeth and the closest band is?


    Metallica.





    I rest my case. It's total arse.

    How did you get around the zip code check on Pandora? I tried that in 2006 but failed because I was non-USA.

    that has it quirks too tho, for example, graham coxon is 100% similar to blur, but damon albarn is only 63% similar to blur :s
