I haven’t posted a “stumbled upon” site for a while. I’m so glad I did a little stumbling today. I found this amazing, rad, website called We Are Hunted. It’s this website that compiles the 99 most talked about songs on blogs, social networks and forums.
Music is such an important part of my creative process–so I’m always looking for new music to inspire me. And, I LOVE LOVE LOVE finding about things before they become mainstream. Some of the songs on We are Hunted are not even on KCRW (the source many advertisers turn to select music for their ad campaigns) yet. There’s also mainstream songs on We Are Hunted, as well–so make sure you are on the “emerging” section.
Here’s a song I found on the site that I’m really digging:
The Glitch Mob-Between Two Points (Featuring Swan):
There’s Also this cool option to “Discover Emerging Songs Just for You”. It’s like a mini Pandora. They program asks you to rate a bunch of songs–giving the individual songs either thumbs up or thumbs down. After you are finished, a list is created. I’m pretty stoked with mine. It has a cover of a Bob Dylan song from the Dirty Projectors–a band that was a hit at Coachella this past year, Bon Iver’s “Blindsided”, Matt and Kim’s “Cameras”, Mumford and Sons’ “White Blank Pages”, and Neon Indian’s “Psychic Chasms” to name a few.
I’m so glad I found this site. I’m going to add their “Hunted Radio” app to my iphone.
