Daily Dose Pick: Music Blog Zeitgeist


Music Blog Zeitgeist is the Hype Machine’s punchy visual reference for the most blogged-about bands and artists of 2009.

Based on thousands of daily posts by bloggers writing about their favorite music, the Hype Machine aggregates the myriad songs and remixes floating across the web. At the end of the year, the site revealed the top 50 artists according to how frequently it posted their songs, then paired each act with a visual artist who created original work based on the band name.

View all 50 of the artworks in the project, peruse the top music blogs on the Hype Machine, stream the site’s radio station, and track the Hype Machine Twitter music chart.
