There’s always a new kid in town when it comes to online music choices. Isn’t it nice to know that we’re all just a few clicks away from escaping the office? (Mentally, at least.)
Here at Gate6, we’re always testing out new ways to get our music fix while we work. Pandora is an obvious fav, and for good reason. But outside of the Pandora box, there are lots of worthy music channels to explore.
StereoMood is perfect when you don’t know exactly what you want to hear but you’re in a mood to hear something. Simply click on how you’re feeling (i.e., psychadelic, beach party, it’s raining) and it takes you to a playlist of related tracks.
IHeartRadio is a good choice when you want to hear a specific radio station or artist. Don’t be scared away by the seemingly complicated task of finding and creating your own stations — once you get started, it’s a cake walk.
And then there’s Spotify. I’m just getting my feet wet with this platform and I’m kind of diggin’ it (even though they did that whole not-so-sneaky Facebook tie-in). What’s cool about it is that you can listen to entire albums, not just the radio edited versions, and you wind up coming across artists you otherwise wouldn’t find.
How do you jam out at work? We want to hear from you!
