Anybody know anything about the Music Genome Project? I just discovered it by accident. I liked the articles I've listened to, or watched.

I listen to Pandora for about 80% of my desk-time at work.  It's introduced me to a fair number of new bands.  Like Netflix, you really need to guide it for a while using their thumbs-up/thumbs-down rating system.  But after a while, it becomes pretty good at predicting what you like.

Here are the stations I've cultivated:
Blood & Soil (Folk-Metal, Post Rock): http://www.pandora.com/?sc=sh188478802944352900
Tired of Punk (Modern Punk that doesn't make me want to kill puppies): http://www.pandora.com/?sc=sh173293452148105860
Tech-Fastic (Power Metal, Technical Metal): http://www.pandora.com/?sc=sh167496367284970116

It's a great site.  Can expose you to artists you would have never listened just based on their being "mapped" to those you like.  Also they do a great job with their music education series on things like vocal harmonies, rhythmic patterns, percussion styles, etc.

Thanks for reminding me about that site! I had cked it out a long time ago, and then forgot about it. It's a nice to thing to have running all day, and be able to hear some fresh sounds or more obscure cuts you had never heard before. I set up an Al Green station and got to hear something i never heard before, Otis Redding singing Papa's Got A Brand New Bag! [:0] [:D]
