Zeitgeist 2012 is LIVE!
We have some good stuff for you this year, as always:
Top 50 Artists: We looked at all the blog data we collected this year to generate the Top 50 Artists chart. Then, we reached out to 50 amazing visual artists to make this beautiful chart. Check out the art, hear a sample track by each artist, and find out more about their most recent record.
Top 50 Tracks: We looked at the most favorited tracks of 2012, gave these lists to a few awesome artists like The Hood Internet and Major Lazer (plus more coming later in the week). They drew on these tracks to create custom Zeitgeist Mixes. You can also find these on your iPhone in the “Radio Show” section of the app.
Top Albums: We’ve partnered with Tumblr to create GIFs of 75 releases that music bloggers have been talking about this year. Visit the Zeitgeist Tumblr and reblog the animated covers to vote for your favorites in the ultimate list of the best music of 2012.
Voting closes on December 20th, do it!
And if this is not enough for you, Largehearted Boy is maintaing his massive List of Lists, as usual.
Finally, if you are in NY, join us on December 8th at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar for an evening of music, album GIFs,and excellent holiday shopping.

We’ve been listening to your feedback over the past many months as we’ve been working on the new version of our iPhone app.
Today it’s out. Rewritten and redesigned from scratch, faster and more visual than ever, we are very proud to share it with you. It seems that some of you already like it. Thanks!
This is a free upgrade if you already have the app, and just $3.99 otherwise. Pick it up!
For those of you on Android, I am also excited to tell you that we are now working on an official app, so stay tuned! But in the meantime, you may find UberHype to be handy.
