AOL Spins Me Round Round Baby
Pandora…yeah, I opened that box. And though I will say it is a pretty fantastic online music source, it tends to slow my computer wayyyy the f down. Not to mention, I can’t stand repetition AND I would rather swallow broken glass than listen to Jack Johnson, who seems to get peppered into whichever streaming station I choose from, be it Marilyn Manson or Enya.
Instead, I turn to AOL Spinner. Yes, that’s right, AOL. Despite charging their gullible non-tech savvy customers (hey ma!) for email and search capabilities, AOL does, in fact, offer a cool and useful tool in Spinner: endless choices for music lovers.
- The Interface: Live Performances
- Free MP3 Downloads: The name kind of says it all
- Spinner Radio: 350+ Streaming Radio Stations
- And my favorite, Listening Party: New full albums, in their entirety, for free! You’re also offered the opportunity to buy the album and get full lyrics, though I’m more of a hum along kind o’ guy.
Thanks to Spinner’s expertly-chosen and diverse music offerings I’ve caught advanced releases of Scarlet Johannson and Pete Yorn’s duet album, Jay-Z Blueprint, The Avett Brothers and Basement Jaxx. The albums are only available for a limited time, but variety is the spice of life…time to tune in!
