COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, Music
..RELEASED: 10/15/09, VERSION: 2.2.0 -- RATING: 5 Stars..

I do a fair bit of traveling in my car, and I like soft music playing in the background. What I am hearing though are the same old songs, whether hip-hop or rock, repeating themselves. I recently started listening to Indie Rock and appreciate the fresh, new sounds and music rhythms that it provides. Yet Indie is hard to find on the radio stations. Fortunately, Music Map: Indie Rock brings us a variety of new and soul-satisfying music for a refreshing change. This attractive and easy-to use app provides you with a dial style of finding music from regions such as the Southeast, North Atlantic, North Central, Mountain, Pacific Northwest, Southwest and the Top 100. Tap any of those regions then the Listen Now button, and you're all set to enjoy some excellent, new music. Some of the bands featured on Music Map: Indie Rock are: Animal Collective, Death Cab for Cutie, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Silversun Pickups, and a multitude more. Music Map plays tracks in shuffle mode with unlimited skips, which is one feature that I particularly like, and is very rare in other music apps. One other important note is that the music sound quality is pretty good. When you are listening to a song, you are placed on a screen with a couple button choices such as: Buy, a play slider bar and List Info. If you tap Buy, you are taken out of the app to the iTunes Store to hear a preview of the song where you can also choose to buy it, if you wish. If you tap List Info, you will be given some background on the region of the song to which you are listening. Broaden your music culture with some excellent Indie music from Music Map: Indie Rock, and your friends will probably want to join you in listening too.

"With Music Map: Indie Rock, simply touch a region on the map to listen to the hottest Indie Rock songs hailing from that region of the U.S. Explore over 500 of the best Indie Rock songs songs. Discover bands you never knew about and listen to how culture, location, music history and weather play a role in different region's sounds."
