YouTube Music Discovery Project

YouTube's TestTube (like Google Labs) recently launched the YouTube Music Discovery Project or "Disco" for short.

"You type in the name of an artist or group in a search box. Then you hit the “Disco” button to find music. A playlist will appear as the search result."

This feature is similar in functionality to Pandora, or "Genius" on iTunes.

I typed in "Pearl Jam" which returned a 40 video playlist of songs from Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Screaming Trees, The Black Crowes and Soundgarden. It's actually a pretty decent playlist I've kept running in the background.

Normally, I would have clicked thru to these "related videos" in a click-by-click exploration. I appreciate YouTube doing some of that work for me with this feature.
