Ever hear a song and think, “Hmm, never heard that one before?” Well, with these great feeds you can transform your My Yahoo! page into a gateway to the world of new music.
One of the best ways you can learn about hot new music is to tune into what other musicians are listening to. The Sound Opinions module features famous and other not-so well known artists playing their own tunes and songs that they enjoy themselves.
Hip hop changes constantly with new mixes and artists. About.com’s Rap/Hip-Hop module gives you a solid source of news and reviews oriented more towards the casual listener who just wants to keep up with the latest sounds.
Pitchfork Media is one of the most famous sites for following the always-changing realm of Indie Rock. With their module you’ll get clever, opinionated reviews covering pop, experimental, country, and dance music – and the reviews appear at lightning speed.
Most of these sites focus on Western music. For more on world music, try the Sound Roots module. It’s a great blog that covers music from around the globe, even from Africa and Indonesia. Expand your ears with instruments like the aponga or the charango!
