Official streaming discovery app from the world's favorite cutting-edge music blog aggregator

If you've ever been called a music snob, you almost certainly already know about Hype Machine (vice versa is also likely true). Their team follows over 800 of the most cutting-edge music blogs from around the world, culling the most talked-about tracks for your listening delight.

The official app lets you stream the most popular tracks from this week - no Katy Perry here, folks, this is Hipsterlandia - or scour the newest posts for new tunes to love. Connect with your friends to see what they dig and share your own favorites. A customized feed keeps you casually up to date. No matter if you're a House junkie or a total hip hop fiend, you'll find something that fits your taste within the wide span of genres here.

The app automatically scrobbles to your last.fm account (if you've got one), so you can broadcast to the world just how groovy and exclusive your taste is.

Using the app is smooth like butter. It couldn't be simpler to discover new tracks. The one complaint I'd have is the price tag - it seems a bit steep given all the free music discovery apps out there.
