iAlbums is a free music streaming site that gives you a new way to explore music. Not only is it the largest free music streaming site around – with over 11 million tracks by 2.6 million artists (I’m listening to No More Shall We Part by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds as I write this), it also does things no other site does, like giving you the music that influenced your favorite artists – while also giving your the latest news, reviews and related information about those artists. The folks behind the site say you can think of iAlbums as a kind of ‘Pinterest for music.’

iALBUMS LAUNCHES THE LARGEST FREE MUSIC STREAMING SITE AND OFFERS A REVOLUTIONARY WAY TO EXPERIENCE MUSIC AND THE CONTENT BEYOND
iAlbums Offers the Largest Online Free Music Streaming Service Available Worldwide and Lets Users Engage with Content Far Beyond the Music Itself
Tel Aviv, Israel, February 2013 – Straight out of “Startup Nation” comes a brand new online music streaming service, which neatly packages over 11 million tracks by 2.6 million Artists, and will revolutionize the online music experience. Free and available anywhere in the world at ialbums.com
Think of iAlbums like a “Pinterest for music,” with 11 million YouTube videos at your disposal to “pin,” or add to your PlayBoard. But this is just the beginning—beyond the music, you will get the latest news, reviews, and any other information pertaining to your favorite artists, automatically curated for your music taste and all consolidated into one neat little page.
iAlbums further connects you with the music by providing you with new musical discoveries based on your interests. Rather than simply taking your favorite genre and suggesting other artists within that genre, iAlbums goes beyond this to give you the music that has influenced those artists, allowing you to expand your musical horizons in a totally new way.
Moreover, iAlbums has a social component allowing you to see what your friends are listening to, discover new music soulmates, and share playlists in a simple fashion.
"We created iAlbums because we missed a lot of what once made music special," said Gilad Woltsovitch, Co-Founder of iAlbums. "We missed the liner notes, the album art…the whole experience of engaging with the music.” This is the essence of the existing iAlbums app available for the iPhone downloaded by over 40,000 users; iAlbums.com goes even further by enabling fans to stream any song by any artist while pulling in the data feed in real time.
The technology behind iAlbums’ new website has been made possible by their recent acquisition of former music streaming service, Loudlee’s core technology. The combination of iAlbums’ music knowledge graph and machine-learning technology with Loudlee’s slick UI and social capabilities provides for a flawless platform for music sharing and discovery.
The new iAlbums brings you a simple, beautiful way to access all the music you love plus discover hours of new music. Your new musical journey will allow you to share music with friends, stay up-to-date with info on your favorite artists, and discover new music, all within a sleek Pinterest-style platform.
