See Things Differently
French site, Radio Blog Club enters the crowded radio streaming and discovery market with a neat application to create a playlist based upon any artist you search. You’re subsequently presented with a long list of tracks by the artist and are given the option of adding the artist to your playlist, creating a radio station around that artist, or in a nice feature, offered a customisable widget featuring your selected track.
As with Hype Machine and Blog Muzik, the tracks are all MP3’s which Radio.Blog Club have ‘discovered’ on blogs and websites, meaning the site can sidestep accusations of being unlicensed by simply saying they’re linking to exisiting files. However, we found the playlists a little too eclectic with some playlisted artists veering widely from the original search. Overall, it’s a very well put together site and fun to use for a while, but we prefer other stations like TUN3R, Critial Metrics and Last.fm.
