Gnoosic
Scala for Spotify
Every Noise
Spot alike
Bandcamp

Most users rely on recommendations from music streaming services. If you're using an audio streaming app, you're unlikely to come across music that doesn't suit your taste. However, streaming services go far beyond search capabilities..

In my opinion, if you do not want to search for new genres, but prefer to trust the recommendations of the service, the functionality of Spotify or Apple Music will be enough for you to search. Otherwise, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the provided list of services. They are really worth it!

Gnoosic

If you love listening to pop-rock bands such as Plain White T's, Simple Plan, Something Corporate and so on, and want to find music of this kind, this is the tool for you! I introduced my three favorite bands: izzamuzzic, ZHU and Zarrue, and he immediately asked me about Nbsplv, whose tracks I really like. I listen to them on a par with the first three. The service is decent.

Gnoosic uses a self-learning system. The service offers to evaluate different musical compositions from the positions “I like it”, “I don’t like it” or “I don’t know”. Based on your answers, Gnoosic tries to make recommendations to better suit your taste..

Scala for Spotify

Scala for Spotify is an application like Tinder for the Spotify music service. Only you will not search for people, but for music with its help. Discover new artists and songs just by swiping left and right (like you do on Tinder). Multiple playlists can be created and easily exported to Spotify for further listening to music. I especially liked the ability to work with the application even without registering with Spotify. All in all, if you are not listening to music from your computer, you should definitely try this app.

Every Noise

If in the applications and services described above, recommendations are given by group, song or genre, then Every Noise offers to search for all three parameters. This site is a great attempt at displaying little-known music as a music card.

For example, if you like Radiohead and want to find similar music, just enter the band name in the search bar at the top of the screen. The service will give you a list of genres that Radiohead works in. Click on any of them and get dozens of artists working in the same genre. Click on any musician or band and listen to a 30-second sample of the song. What sets the service apart from its peers is that each genre has its own playlists for Spotify, which can be accessed with one click.

Spot alike

Spot Alike is a web service from Last.fm that generates playlists for Spotify at the click of a button. You just need to enter the name of your favorite track in the text field and select the song from the pop-up window. In a few seconds, the service will display a ready-made playlist for Spotify. You can also log into Spotify and immediately see the corresponding playlist in the app.

For example, if you type Adele in the text box and hit enter, the service will display a list of tracks similar to the work of the British singer. Now you can add this playlist to Spotify with one click. You can browse playlists by both artist and song title.

Bandcamp

Bandcamp is a little-known service primarily used by musicians to promote their songs. The application has a feed showing songs and albums of various bands and artists in your favorite genres. It's a great way to find new music to your liking.

The Bandcamp Weekly section features hand-crafted track lists by genre each week. The app's only drawback is that you have to buy music. And since most of the users prefer to listen to it for free, Bandcamp may not seem to be the most suitable option for many.
