Discover New Music With Peel

Friday, July 24, 2009 at 4:06 PM
Music on the radio is dead. I discover the majority of new music these days from one of two sources: friends or the internet. Music blogs are a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of what's hot in the music scene.

Peel is an app that gathers all the mp3s from your music blogs and presents them in an interface similar to iTunes.

The great part is that you can stream the songs to your computer before you download them. That way, you know you're getting a track you like before you add it to your collection. Also, downloading the song and importing it to iTunes is as simple as one click of the mouse. You can even configure it so the tracks you download are placed into playlists named after the blogs they come from.

Of course, you can customize the list of music blogs you follow. Here are a couple of my favorites to get you started:

Peel is free for 25 days and $15 after that.
