Credit: We Are HuntedWe Are Hunted is one of my favorite sites music discovery sites. It's hard to find the latest new and fresh music on the internet sometimes. On the internet you run into is the same ten or so songs that are being hyped by everyone simply because they are popular.
If you're looking for a handy place to easily listen to the latest emerging artist that aren't the same as what's on the pop charts We Are Hunted might be the place for you.
What it is not
We Are Hunted isn't a large music database with all of your favorite songs waiting to be played. You can't search through the site and find whatever you want.
What it is
We Are Hunted is a blog aggregator music discovery site. Music that is being talked about from around the internet is pulled to We Are Hunted and is brought to one place for your listening pleasure. We Are Hunted focuses on emerging artists, specifically the top 99 tracks at any given time. The content is highly curated and geared toward serious music fans. We Are Hunted monitors sites all over the internet including blogs forums, and p2p networks searching for the top songs at the time.
The site provides fresh content on a daily basis, but some tracks stay on the list for a long time. For that reason it is best to tune into We Are Hunted once or twice a week and give the entire playlist a listen to find new music, instead of using it as a daily radio site.
