Checking out this new music search engine called Just Hear It and it’s looking great! I’m happy cause so many of these sites are seeing the light of day these past months and most of them just don’t cut it. Simplicity and soberness are the words of the day and Just Hear It couldn’t be easier of use (and it’s legal – they’re paying licensing fees to ASCAP, BMI and SESAC).
- Type in a song or artist
- List of tunes appears
- Double click on song to load it in player
- Add song to playlist by dragging or by pressing one single button
That’s what Just Hear It allows us to do and that’s about all that needs to be done. I couldn’t ask for less.
Well actually there is more to Just Hear It than just that like sharing links to your songs, and they seem to have some plans for the future. But still, I can’t stress this enough: the fastest way for for us to find and consume what we’re looking for is the best way and Just Hear It seems to have understood that (reminds me a lot of how the old RadioBlogClub used to work, but only better).
They are still in a invite-only private beta phase but you can still browse through songs and create playlists if you don’t have an account.
