Web/Android/iOS: Lots of services try to predict music you'll love with algorithms, and others have an entirely human touch, but Wonder.fm combines both in a visually good-looking way. The result is a webapp you can sit back and stream all day, and mobile apps that work anywhere. Best of all, it's all free. The team behind Wonder (and its offshoots, electronic music-focused site Primary and hip-hop site White Label, both available in the sidebar at Wonder) explained that they use algorithms and technology to see what newly released songs and artists are trending on music blogs around the web, and then actual human curation to choose the best of those new songs and float them to the front of their respective homepages.
The end result is that you get to hear some of the best new music from independent artists and small producers first, before they hit the big sites, and you get to download and support their music too right out of the gate. Even better, it means you're introduced to some great new music that you may never have heard, from musicians you're not familiar with, so you always have something fresh and interesting to listen to.
