A Need For New Music

Okay, Squiders, I need your help today.

I went to my old music standby, Grooveshark, the other day, which is where I’ve made my novel-specific playlists over the years, only to discover that it had been shut down (and in April. I knew I’d been focusing a lot on short stories/nonfic projects lately, but I didn’t realize that it had been that long).

I’m a little grumpy, because if there was any warning that the site was going down, I didn’t get it, or I would have gone in and made sure I had a list of what songs were in each playlist so I could replicate them elsewhere. So now I don’t know what music I had saved in there, nor how to find it elsewhere.

But anyway! I find myself in need of a new website to make story playlists on. In theory, this website should:

  • Allow me to make my own playlists of specific songs
  • Let me listen to said playlists on infinite repeat
  • Be free or at least fairly cheap, and, ideally
  • Have limited or no ads

Those are listed in order of importance. I’ve been out of touch on the music website front (obviously), so I have no idea what’s even out there. If you have something you use that you would recommend, or even if you’ve just heard about something that sounds like it will work, please let me know!

In other news, Hidden Worlds will be celebrating its fifth anniversary of publication at the end of the year, and I’d like to get it some new reviews so I can do some promotional campaigns. If you’re willing to commit to leaving an Amazon review (and, if you’re feeling generous, a Goodreads or Smashwords one as well) before the end of November, I will give you a free ebook copy of the book. Email me at kitmcampbell at gmail dot com and we’ll get the ball rolling!

    Spotify. It’s free. Huge catalog. Apps for PC, Mac, iOS, Android, as well as web interface. You can pay, too, by I think that only really buys you the ability to listen to a full album w/out shuffle. I don’t know if the radio feature has ads or not on the free service, but playlists shouldn’t.
