After seeing literally heaps of music apps being unleashed on the market over the last year or so, things have gone rather quiet since the Spotify juggernaut came rolling into town. Zenound Music is a nicely relaxed mp3 streaming application that gives you plenty of room to stretch out, better organize and listen to your music collection and discover new stuff while letting you share your favorite music with your social friends.
 
With the demise of the record store there has been a bit of a gulf in getting music across to the rest of the general public. As with most things in this digital world, the way we listen to and hear about new music has taken a radical change of late and one has had to search out new ways of discovering new stuff - especially if your taste runs a little left of center. So...gone are the record stores with the nice guy behind the counter who was always happy to recommend a few interesting new releases. Gone are most of the TV shows (apart from the highly commercial MTV service, of course) where you used to be able to catch up on new releases that didn't feature Kanye or Beyonce. What I'm saying here is you are going to have to work harder and is cover new ways of hearing new stuff - not to mention some great old stuff. That is where a music app like Zenound comes in handy. This new service helps you better organize, listen to, discover and share music. Here, you can create and share playlists and feeds with friends or in public as well as discovering new music and keeping track of your favorite artists and genres. Users can submit new songs as well as keeping track of new releases of their favorite artists and create smart playlists called Feeds which can be set up to fit certain criteria and shared with friends or publicly. It has charts that range from top rated songs to recently added. Zenound was made by music lovers for music lovers to help you keep your music organized, in one place, and help you to discover new music that you care about.
 
Zenound Music's claim is that it can change the way you listen to music. While it isn't quite the groundbreaking app it claims to be, it is a fun and easy way to listen to and hear music that you maybe wouldn't normally be exposed to. You can search for specific artists, styles or genres whether it be dubstep, blues or hip hop and, to be quite honest, this is where this music streaming app can surprise you. It's always fun to view other music lovers' feeds and playlists. Let's face it, the thing that sets these music players apart from similar ones are the people that use it. Zenound is a cool looking, easy to use music streaming app that you could fall in love with.
