One Minute Radio
Posted by Paul in Music, playlist, The Echo Nest on August 16, 2013
If you’ve got a short attention span when it comes to new music, you may be interested in One Minute Radio. One Minute Radio is a Pandora-style radio app with the twist that it only every plays songs that are less than a minute long. Select a genre and you’ll get a playlist of very short songs.
Now I can’t testify that you’ll always get a great sounding playlist – you’ll hear intros, false starts and novelty songs throughout, but it is certainly interesting. And some genres are chock full of good short songs, like punk, speed metal, thrash metal and, surprisingly, even classical.
OMR was inspired by a conversation with Glenn about the best default for song duration filters in our playlisting API. Check out One Minute Radio. The source is on github too.
