My Weekly Music Chart

Since January of 2004 I’ve been using Audioscrobbler to keep track of my listening habits.

Audioscrobbler builds a profile of your musical taste using a plugin for your media player (Winamp, iTunes, XMMS etc..). Plugins send the name of every song you play to the Audioscrobbler server, which updates your musical profile with the new song. Every person with a plugin has their own page on this site which shows their listening statistics. The system automatically matches you to people with a similar music taste, and generates personalised recommendations.

Audioscrobbler has been a great tool for finding new music through the months I’ve been participating and it keeps improving with new features and statistics.
Recently I’ve grown lax in frequently recommending albums and artists in detail so I’ve been considering ways to catch up or supplement this. I feel very strongly that I should do what I can to spread word about art I enjoy so this is important to me. Starting tonight I’ll be posting a weekly music chart generated by Audioscrobbler here. I hope you’ll take the time to listen to any artists you haven’t yet and perhaps join Audioscrobbler (and add me to your network) to discover even more music. If you are curious about what I’m listening to at any given moment or would like to see my top 50 artists and songs, feel free to look at my Audioscrobbler profile.
