Stop chasing your music across different machines, services and websites. It's time to take the work out of "play". If the song you want to listen to is in your local library, it just plays. If the song is on a remote machine, it just plays. If the song is on the web, or available from your subscription service, it just plays. By abstracting a piece of content's metadata from its file location, users can easily share playlists, listening history and more. It's sort of like Wonka Vision, Tomahawk will reassemble it on the other side. OK, maybe that's not a good analogy... but it's just as delicious.
Yeah, it's like a "genius" playlist... only smarter. We thank our friends at the The Echo Nest for the "smarter" part. You want an upbeat station that only plays obscure songs from artists similar to your favorites? Or, maybe you want the most popular songs that fit the description "moody"? Perhaps you have just heard about a new genre called "foamcore" and want to see what the fuss is all about? Whatever you are seeking, we've got the knobs and dials to find it for you.
