Savage Beast Musicology

NPR : Using Advanced Musicology to Find New Favorites

Heard this story on NPR, about this company which uses breakdowns of songs and their attributes in order to recommend other songs to you. They currently offer this just to corporate clients, but seem to be gearing up for a public venture in the near future.

Their system seemed to work from the samples they played in the story, the group and song they recommended based on the Counting Crows Last December was as appealing to me as that song is; and the group they recommended based on a CSN song sounded very much in that tradition.
