TuneGlue was a visual music map — you typed in any artist/band, and TuneGlue provided you with a cluster of related artists/bands. It was a quick, easy way to discover music you might not otherwise find.
Life Hacker also has a little write-up explaining how TuneGlue worked.
Music Map is a similar tool — enter the name of any artist/band, and Music Map gives you a free floating, hovering map of related artists.
Although I love music data and analytics, I don’t use sites like TuneGlue or Music Map as a music discovery tool.
They do, however, provide nice alternatives to organize/view/think about music and bands in a different way than you might otherwise.
