HypeMachine is a service that is designed to follow stories about music on blogs, think of it as a Technorati of music. But what makes this service interesting is that it also scans the same blogs for actual music files. Just punch in your favorite artist (I’ll bet they have it) and you can play the song for free using HypeMachines flash player.
Taking a cue from Joox, HypeMachine doesn’t actually host the audio files. They only steam the hosted songs from the websites it culls, proving a link back to the content. How long can this last? We don’t know, but we suggest you try it out.
