Contrastream

ContraStream provides socially filtered indie music with digg-style recommendations. With a giant sea of indie music being released all the time, there needs to be a reliable way to filter out the bad stuff and only listen to the good. ContraStream aspires to be that way.

The site promises to help users find good music quickly. Artists upload indie music and others vote on it Digg-fashion to push the good stuff to the top of the site. It is at least somewhat similar to iJigg , which also lets users vote on music in a similar manner.

ContraStream will leverage the user-generated voting data to create let users search/browse popular music. Each artist and album also gets its own dedicated page on the site.

In an effort to “keep the music indie,” users are encouraged to flag music that is “too mainstream”.
