stereomood - emotional internet radio
Stereomood is this nifty new site that I found today via a link from a friend's Facebook page.  The idea is this:  you're in a mood.  Some kind of unique mood that's different from yesterday or this morning or 5 minutes ago.  You have no idea what to listen to that matches this mood of yours.  Enter Stereomood.  Just choose the mood you're in from the tag cloud or search for it and bang!  An instant playlist that you can stream and listen to.

This morning I was listening to the "It's Raining" mood playlist because, well, I live in Vancouver it's pretty much raining most the time.  Specifically it was raining this morning.  It was a cool, mellow mix splashed with some fun songs like "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" which was quite amusing.  Since I'm listening as I'm working, I decided to switch over to the "Lost in Thought" mood to see what was in there.  Nice, mellow music.  Nothing too crazy and loud, but nothing depressing either.

You can save playlists, make your own playlist, recommend songs to be added, add tags to songs, artists or albums.  There's also a link beside each song as it's playing to buy it from iTunes or Amazon, which is also nifty.  I've run across some interesting live versions of songs (Beck doing a live cover of an Elliot Smith song for example) which makes it interesting.

I think Stereomood can be a fun new way to listen to music when you're not sure what exactly you want to listen to.  It's also a great way to find new artists.  I haven't heard of quite a few of the bands I've been listening to today.

Go check it out by clicking on the banner link at the top of this post!  You'll find nifty stuff like what's playing for me right now... a crazy remix of Frank Sinatra singing "My Way".
