Shuffler.fm is Pretty Cool

The other night, as I was streaming music from Pretty Much Amazing (pretty much the only music blog I know of), gearing up for a few solid hours of design work, I heard this:

And I was blown away. Who was this Katy B? She just turned a One Direction song that I’m vaguely embarrassed to admit that I don’t completely hate…into a One Direction song that I’m unabashedly going to say is pretty much amazing.

Needless to say, I practically tripped over myself to figure out how to favorite it. Quick, Michelle! Before the song ends and its existence is forever effaced from your memory!

At first, I was irritated to find out that Pretty Much Amazing’s streaming player is run by some third-party site called “Shuffler.fm,” which sounded suspiciously similar to Last.fm (a site that, unlike Pandora or Spotify, I could never really get into). But I was so desperate to favorite this song that I just went ahead and signed up.

And what do you know? I’m pleasantly surprised. Shuffler.fm is an online radio app that streams tracks from music blogs all over the web. What an ingenious way to discover new music–and music blogs! I also really love their site design–very clean and modern, but sort of warm and friendly, too. Here’s the front page:

And here’s a user profile:

I haven’t favorited many things yet, but you can follow me here. In the meantime, you know what I’ll be listening to.
