Peel Away!

PeelI came across a great new application for those of you who enjoy finding new music on the web. It’s called Peel and it’s basically a newsreader for mp3 blogs that integrates with iTunes. It has been ages since I found a music application this useful.

If there are music websites that you visit frequently (a few of my top hits are Arjan Writes, Fluxblog, and Stereogum) and they post mp3s on a regular basis, Peel is for you. It allows you to view the mp3s at a glance, preview them, and download them directly to iTunes if you like. It also allows you to flip between a preview screen of the mp3s and the actual site that they are on, so if there is text discussing the music, you can check it out.

I believe it’s only available for Mac OSX. It’s also a free download at the moment and you can’t beat that.
