Search for something musical and start learning.
We're a bunch of music nerds (okay, just one nerd) who think learning about music is too hard. We wish all the information about music was in one place. We wish that instead of looking for things, we could have already found things. Like, now. Well, if wishes were fishes then we would know the end of this couplet. But we don't. So instead we built LinerNotes.
Right now, LinerNotes is in a very early beta. That means that a lot of things are broken or missing. Right now you can search for things by name, save favorites for later, generate simple playlists based on your favorite artists, or experiment with "hard mode" (which lets you search using concepts like "people who play the alto saxaphone.") In the future, you'll also be able to add new information, customize your profile to show off your taste, use whatever streaming music player you want. Or buy MP3's, and get recommendations that you can actually understand (i.e. "you'll like this band because they're on Subpop, not just because some unfriendly math robot told you to.")
We need your help and your feedback to make sure that we're building something that you'll love. So please give LinerNotes a try and send us feedback with bugs or ideas for things you'd like to see.
Thanks. We love you. An appropriate amount. Oh yeah! All of our information comes from open databases like Musicbrainz, DBPedia, and Freebase or from API's like Last.fm, The Echonest, and Songkick. Those guys are cool.
