The truth is that with Spotify, Pandora and many online radios that can be found on the network, is more than enough for listening to music when we work or whether to liven up any special occasion.
However, SomaFM is one of those radios that have an added value over the others: its music is not commercial, never hear the same thing and comes to all without distinction of location.
The most important thing to note is the selection of music that emits radio. That is, you will not find the usual artists, but it is for those who like to discover new artists that are not commercial. There are channels of electronic music, ambient, indie, electro-rock, electro-pop, alternative rock or only covers, just to name a few.
If there is a channel of the most original and unusual, it is mixes audio from NASA missions, combined with new age melodies or one that only broadcasts Asian music. To say that the only thing they have in common is that all channels are a strong electronic influence on them, perhaps except for channel which broadcast alternative rock or the one that dedicates to the music not known of the 80s.
The sound quality is acceptable without being spectacular. You can hear from any player best known as Windows Media or Winamp and almost all channels are offered as 128 kbps AAC or 64K or MP3 format of the same qualities.
If you are one of those who listen to music through portable devices, SomaFM also boasts dedicated applications in iTunes or Google Play. Each costs just over 3 euros to change.
