Would you believe me if I told you MTV might actually help you find some new music to listen to? Not by playing videos on their TV station, of course, but with their free new Music Meter app for iOS and Android.
Basically you can browse a chart of new trending artists (or hunt around the database yourself) and peep photos, bios, and 30 second audio clips courtesy of Rhapsody. The iPhone version looks slick and the trending artists seem to be more in the James Blake vein than the Ke$ha one, which is a good thing. [iTunes and Android Market]
