Playlist-sharing site Songza is trying a new angle on music recommendations: a feature called Music Concierge. The idea: people say what they’re doing, and it suggests playlists that might match. has a good breakdown of how it works, starting with the time of day (“It’s Monday Late Morning…”) and then asking what the user is doing – working, taking the day off, just waking up etc. “Bringing curation to music means more than suggesting that people who like Adele might also like Duffy. It means delivering an experience that is aware of the context in which you need music,” explains the company. “Songza’s Music Concierge feature takes Songza’s library of expertly handcrafted playlists and then effortlessly maps the right playlist to you based on the time of day, the day of the week, the device you are on, your past preferences and what you want a soundtrack for.”
