I love discovering new music. I get so excited when I find a new artist I like and now, I have an even easier way to do so!
To save your preferences as you listen, you’ll need to register. It’s free and very easy to do. Just click on the JoinStumbleAudio link at the top of the page. Fill out the form and you’re good to go!
I started by typing in the name of an artist I like in the search engine at the top of the page. I typed in Charlotte Martin. It found 245 similar artists that I could listen to. On the left side of the page, you’ll have a selection of artists to choose from. Simply click on one to hear them.
It will load the album in the middle of the page and the track will automatically play when it’s done loading. Beneath that, you’ll see a Thumb Up and a Thumb Down button. Those let you select whether you liked what you heard or hated it.
Next to that is a Share button, which allows you to share the track with your friends and family by automatically copying the track’s URL to your clipboard. Just go to your e-mail and paste it in the text field. Then just address the e-mail to as many of your friends and family as you want.
Then there’s the Stumble button. Clicking on that will let you discover music at random. As you rate songs with the Thumb Up and Thumb Down buttons, it will start to hone the music you hear to your preferences. The more you rate, the smarter it gets about what you like.
That’s why I recommend starting off with an artist you already know you like. But, if you’d rather, you’ll notice on the main page, there’s a listing of music categories. You can also pick one of those and then Stumble from there.
The thing I love the most is I don’t have to listen to a track I don’t like if I don’t want to. I can just click on the Thumb Down button and move along, either by clicking on the Stumble button or by putting in a different artist and listening to something else.
This is an excellent way to discover music. You get to listen to full tracks, share the ones you like with your friends and best of all, it’s free. Check it out today!
