Rdio Adds Free Music Stations To Its Ios, Android Apps

Google Music app for iOS to drop in October, says report

An updated and free feature called Stations allows you to listen to music from 20 predefined stations built on songs from different artists. You can also create your own stations based on artist, song, album, or genre. In return, Stations plays random selections based on the station you picked, and lets you listen to an unlimited stream of music.

Stations seems to be Rdio’s effort to tap into the online streaming action of iTunes Radio, Pandora, and Spotify. The free service won’t bother you with ads between the songs, according to the Associated Press . However, Rdio is counting on its non-paying users to pony up for a $10-per-month subscription, which includes added features like the ability to pick exact songs and albums they want to hear. Stations is powered by music intelligence company The Echo Nest, which described the feature in a blog posted Thursday. As you listen to stations and songs, the service tries to deciper your tastes to better detemine which music to serve you in the future. The Echo Nest said it’s also working with Rdio to make sure all of the radio stations are DMCA-compliant . Such a move would help avoid any legal skirmishes with the music industry. Stations is available as a feature in the US, Canada, and Australia.

It was the first time I had ever done anything like that and you could tell it was a little nerve-racking,” Stenhouse said. ”It seemed like everybody liked the video so far, so it was cool.” Patrick said the filming was completed just a few weeks ago. ”It’s cool to see it out. It was a lot of fun to do. It was a beautiful day in Mooresville that day,” Patrick said. ”Those are the fun things that you get to do outside of the car. I enjoyed that, that was good fun and obviously I had a pretty hot mechanic working on the car.” Ford, whose real name is Jason Brown, released his first album in 2008. He also co-wrote and originally recorded the song ”Dirt Road Anthem” that Brantley Gilbert turned into a hit. His style’s a fusion of country and rap, and it seems to suit Patrick just fine. ”I grew up listening to rap,” she said. ”I like rap, especially the kind of rap you can understand what he’s saying. Putting a southern twist on it is good, so I like it. I like unique-sounding music and he definitely has that for country music.” Arts & Entertainment HARTFORD, Conn.
