App DescriptionHype Radio Lite turns music blogs into radio stations.
Discover new music from hundreds of the best music blogs around the world.
This is a free version of the premium Hype Machine Radio app, enjoy!
This is The Hype Machine evolved into a lean back, non-stop rich radio experience. The app differs from the site with an even sharper focus on discovering new music - we've de-emphasized ways to go back to familiar artists or songs.
There is no artist search, on-demand playback, but you won't miss a thing. Your favorites are still in the app, but they are mixed with what the blogs you follow are posting, so that you keep finding something new.
★ Radio-style playback of new songs discussed by blogs
★ Original artwork from the post, and the ability to read each blog post behind the music.
★ Every blog in our list (http://hypem.com/blogs), from popular blogs like Stereogum, Said The Gramophone, and Gorilla vs Bear, to under-the-radar gems like NYC Taper, Doklands, and ISO50.
★ Scrobbling to Last.fm, if you have enabled it in your Hype Machine account
