I Like This Band is a little web app whipped together in about an hour using Echonest‘s API. It simply allows you to enter a musician or band’s name and returns a randomized list of similar artists, with links to search for the artist in Google and Google Video and to add the artist to your Pinboard account.
Joshua says, “I mainly wrote it for myself as a simplified version of feature-rich tools like Pandora or Last.fm. I didn’t want playlists of music or videos or anything like that; I just wanted a little simple way to explore and discover new music.”
We might add more features as time goes by.
