The best way we can describe thesixtyone (American music culture of Highway 61, get it?) is a collaborative new-artist Pandora meets VH1′s pop-up video. Their focus is the burgeoning music ecosystem where record labels and their life-sucking $0-2 per album deals are a thing of the past (thesixtyone featured musicians make $7+ per album). Thesixtyone is completely free and you can create playlists, choose moods & channels, see photos, share with friends, download or purchase music directly depending on copyrights, and even challenge yourself with music “quests”. The result? Lots of kick-ass music you’ve never heard before. (Thanks, Max!)
