I just threw together an app that pulls down the daily record reviews from Pitchfork and Metacritic and creates a twitter feed of all of the reviews over 7/10 (or 70/100 in the case of Metacritic). All of the reviews in the Twitter feed link off to tracks on hypem. I’m hoping it creates an easy way to find new music…just follow the feed on Twitter and it’ll typically give you 2-4 new albums in your feed each day with links off to some tracks from each album.

Inspiration came from an old New York Magazine article that talked about people who only “Listen To Anything rated over 8.0 on Pitchforkmedia.com.” This could be the killer app for those folks.
