Once upon a time, in a world not quite unlike our own, record-hounds had to wait patiently for new singles to be released. Of course, in our own time, no one has to wait too long for anything, including the latest tracks from their favorite Brazilian DJ, classical pianist, and so on. One way to take a look at new music (at no charge) is through an audio blog aggregator, such as this one titled The Hype Machine. Visitors can search for new tracks across the audio blogosphere, or look for old favorites. One recent search found such gems as the theme music from television's beloved animated series, Pac-Man, and David Bowie and Bing Crosby duetting down the lane with The Little Drummer Boy.
