8tracks – Playlists galore, this not-so-new web radio site has slowly and rather stealthy grew to capture many users’ and our attention. Completely free and easy to use, 8tracks invites users to create playlists listing at least eight tracks, share these with others and follow other users’ profiles and tastes. According to their About page, 8tracks “offers a simple way for people to share and discover music through an online mix, a short playlist…”
Even if you’re not dead set on creating your own playlist, I encourage you to sign up and try it nonetheless. The music quality is superb, and you can filter your search by clicking one of the various genre buttons on the homepage. In addition, you can simply sit back and enjoy other users’ playlists. That’s how I came across the blues playlist of eight tracks, all dedicated to the best drink that goes along with blues: whiskey.
