It comes as a no surprise that Google has been tracking music uploads, but what’s unexpected is exactly what the company is doing with all of that info. Interactive maps of music’s ongoing journey are charted through Play Music’s users’ libraries, found over on Google’s Research Blog.
It is easy to trace the ebb and flow of a genre era by era or even identify which release from a band is the most prominent. Looking at the Deftones, their biggest album is 2000′s White Pony, and they’re near the top of the alt-metal heap overall. Perhaps best of all, Google says this likely won’t be the last collaboration we see between the research and music teams.
