YouTube Disco

I was playing around today on YouTube Disco, YouTube’s new music discovery effort, and despite the fact that it’s pretty much Pandora on YouTube, they’ve really made good use of the existing infrastructure to make a pretty quality competitor to the music discovery giant.  From Techcrunch:

You can enter any music group or artist, and a playlist pops up, along with a thumbnail video and a description of the band. You can find related artists, create a mixtape, and save playlists. As you are listening to music and watching videos, it is easy to add and delete songs.

YouTube is taking advantage of a lot of the officially-sanctioned Vevo music videos in the Music Discovery Project. Playlists are saved to your regular YouTube playlists page, from where you can share them via email.

Not a bad music option if you’re looking for something to get you through the day.
