Developer App: Fathom


Searching for music similar to your favorite artists? Find them hanging out in the same “neighborhood” on Fathom, this month’s Developer App.

Hop over to Fathom and look up an artist in the search bar. A visual “neighborhood” of suggested albums are laid out — the app pulls recommendations from and plays the tunes from Rdio. You have the choice to give any album a listen, add it to a queue for later, or delete it and a new recommendation will slide right into the empty space. Each album you click on brings new suggestions, letting you surf the music relationships for hours. Follow Fathom on Twitter for future news about the app.
