StereoMood – Mood-based web radio providers are beginning to catch on these days, and we’ve already featured PlaylistNow back in December, which is a great example. The concept in and of itself is groundbreaking; listening to ready-made playlists, based on a definition of one’s mood. Personally, I favor this out-of-the-box take on music consumption, especially when the added value of this technique is discovering new artists and performers I wasn’t familiar with beforehand. Well, if this approach is something you are or might be interested in, you should know there’s a new impressive player in town, literally.
StereoMood is the new emotion-based tuner in the block, and I must admit; compared to PlaylistNow it’s a real gem. What I love about StereoMood is its simplicity. Navigating through the site and the playlists is a breeze and anyone can do it. Simply search for the feeling or activity you identify with the most (the homepage is a word cloud), click on it and voila. Music will be playing automatically. Available moods or states range from Dreamy, Sexy, It’s Raining and Lost in Thought to Digital, Road Trip, Spring Cleaning and loads loads more. I found the audio quality to be absolutely amazing, and since this service is ad-free, StereoMood is by far one of the best music platforms available online today.
Naturally, one of the perks reserved for those who register to the site (registration is free) is creating your own playlists by simply clicking on the plus sign next to each track on any playlist. What else could we possibly ask for? Don’t stop StereoMood team! My favorite playlist is a divine collection of songs that fall under Groovy. What’s yours?
