Pandora Radio has added Dan Beahm and The Invisible Three

what's palying: "Underneath the Radio," by Goldenboy


Start seeding your Pandora stations with Renaissance Boy Recordings artists!

We were recently informed that Amplifier from Dan Beahm and The Invisible Three has been added to the music genome database (the pool from which Pandora derives her lifeblood), and DB3's ...Straight On Till Morning should be available soon as well.

It's hilarious to hear bands and artists that "sound like you." Some of them you wonder what qualities exactly garnered them similarity points, but some are spot on. It's actually kind of scary.

If you don't know what Pandora is, it's an internet radio feed that allows you to create your own custom stations. Say you're really into New Kids On the Block and Twisted Sister... you create a radio station, and "seed" it with those two bands. Pandora then scours the Music Genome database for songs with qualities similar to those artists, and plays songs that it "thinks" you will like. As you listen, you can thumb up or thumb down songs, and your radio station will continue to hone in on exactly what it is that you like about those bands and their music.

It's pretty freakin' cool. Robots know what kind of music I like, and they play it for me every day!

Not only that, but it's a great way to get turned on to new music.

Here's a link to my personal station, where you can see the music I like and listen to, and also share the stations I've created (if you don't want people seeing your stations, you can turn this option off).

So check out Pandora, and don't forget to create your Dan Beahm and The Invisible Three station!
