Are you facing difficulty in finding new music and movies? You can get a solution to this problem with the help of tools designed using advanced technology. Here is a list of some tools through which you can easily search new music and movies.
To find new music:
If you’re looking for a bare-bones recommendation tool, it doesn’t get much simpler
than Gnoosic. Just type in three of your favorite artists and Gnoosic will start recommending similar musicians. Gnoosic
“contains thousands of bands and quite some knowledge about who likes what”.
After each recommendation, tell Gnoosic if you liked what it came up with so it can learn your tastes.
2. Muru Music:
Compatible with iOS devices, Muru makes you personalized playlists to help introduce you to new artists – only this time you choose two genres to journey between via a tailored selection of bangers.
This app lets you follow dozens of blogs like Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound to help keep tabs on the best new music videos. Noted supports Android as well as iOS devices.
Similar to Gnoosic, TasteKid surfaces recommendations based on your existing tastes. But it’s more like a social network in that it shows you how popular that artist is with the TasteKid community. It’s smart, learning more about you with each play. And you don’t have to leave the site to sample the suggested songs, as TasteKid provides a sample of each artist’s work, along with an artist bio.
5. Hype Machine:
The original web-based music discovery service (which started way back in 2005) now has an excellent mobile app, which sees the most popular, user-voted tracks bubble to the top of its feed.
If you’re looking for a music streaming app that’s all about what other people are
listening to, Grooveshark is a good option. It just rolled out a redesign that’s focused intensely on the social aspect of listening to music, letting users discover new tunes through the community. Filtered by genre, Grooveshark’s “Music Feed”
learns what you like and displays songs to accommodate your tastes. Users can tag friends to share music with them and listen to live “Broadcasts” from other Grooveshark users while chatting at the same time.
Like other tools, it works from what you already like, but it sets itself apart by connecting with other music programs like Spotify or iTunes and tracking what you listen to, this is called “Scrobbling”. The data gets imported back into Last.fm’s abase for a complete picture of your tastes. You can catalog musicians with really specific tags like
“female vocalist” or “British.” But one common complaint lobbed at Last.fm is that its interface is cluttered and really hard to navigate if you’re a new user. And its recommended songs play through YouTube, which means you’re subject to annoying ads and questionable video and audio quality.
To find new movies:
It is one of the best tools to search new movies. Looks like every other film search engine: you input the name of a film you like and it returns results. But the site goes well beyond a simple results page. Nanocrowd allows you to drill down into a more refined search with the help of a “three-word nanogenre.” On the results page, you click which three-word category you prefer, based on keywords related to the movie you input into the search field, and Nanocrowd immediately refines your search to get the best film for you. Even better, the films it displays aren’t always blockbusters.
It has an uncanny knack of recommending films that fit your personal preferences – and all by comparing them to the ones you’ve seen. Using the site’s Quick Rate option, you give movies you’ve seen one of four ratings: Awful, Meh, Good or Amazing. After rating only a few,will start feeding you suggestions, complete with a percentage score. We were sceptical at first, but the suggestions are bang on point.
The site allows you to rate films and it returns recommendations that are about as good as Movielens. Beyond beauty, Flixster beats out Movielens because it offers extras
like film quizzes, the capability to monitor friends’ ratings, and more. It’s good for people who want more than just movie ideas.
A social network all about films, it lets you rate (and review, if you’re up for a spot of writing) films you’ve seen, and browse themed lists of recommendations from others. It’s not as active or automatic as, so you’ll have to do much of the digging yourself, but it’s a true treasure trove of information for anyone searching for their next favourite film.
Instead of asking you to input ratings or to tell it what movies you like, IMDb automatically recommends similar films to the movie you search for. At the bottom of the page, a “Recommendations” section explains that if you liked a respective film, you’ll like the handful of other films being displayed, based on information gathered from
an IMDb database, which examines films to find similarities and differences. It’s a great way for people who don’t have time to rate movies to find some films worth watching. Even better, the recommendations are solid.
