Southern Californians and music fans alike should instantly recognise the name KCRW. It's a public radio station that's become increasingly popular thanks to its use of modern methods like podcasts and streaming Internet radio broadcasts in its efforts to educate music fans in the latest and greatest new acts. In the past, KCRW hosts have helped showcase the likes of Beck, Adele, Florence & the Machine, Coldplay, Dido and Massive Attack.

Now there's an app from KCRW that aims to take 'listeners on an audio adventure of artists especially selected by DJs' from the station. Pretty exciting, huh?

KCRW Music Mine - an iPad only app - is dedicated entirely to music exploration using The Echo Nest's music intelligence platform to track down the best new artists. The app offers up to 100 artists at a time with lists updated daily in tandem with the on air playlists for KCRW. Listeners who want to learn more can then find videos, photos, blog posts and more behind each artist as well as discover the musical talent.

The format of KCRW Music Mine lends itself to users who don't have a lot of time on their hands for messing around with configurations. Intead it's an app that's simple to browse and quickly find something of interest.

For fans who just want to kick back and relax, they can jut tap the KCRW's 24 hour, all music stream Eclectic24 and enjoy the music, or they can listen in to full shows by many KCRW DJs.

KCRW Music Mine sounds like the ideal companion for KCRW fans and a fantastic app for music enthusiasts keen to find something new to love. I can certainly see some lazy Sunday afternoons being lost to checking out new music.

It's free to download so why not give it a try today?
