Gone are the days of Remote Control and TRL, but now we have apps for that! The free MTV Music Meter app for Android is the perfect way to discover new and trendy artists making music you might just love. I mean, who has time to sit down and browse through iTunes these days to find new music? We need a more convenient way to find out what is new and worthwhile—just like we use Appolicious to find new Android apps!
Basically you open this musical app and check out what artists are trending at that current moment. Then, you browse through that artist’s audio samples, photos, recent tweets, news articles and bios to get a feel of what they are all about… musically that is! If you are brave and have lots of time on your hands, you can just browse through the thousands of artists to find what you might like or might not.
Just a few of the trending artists I discovered using the MTV Music Meter app were Chipmunk, Boy & Bear and Punch Brothers. I definitely didn’t know any of the artists in the top selection that were trending when I accessed the app. While I’m sure some of you out there know a lot more about music than me, I also know some of you are going to love this trendy app. If you aren’t interested in what is just trendy, you can also search by genre of music. Happy hunting!
