Think you know music? Check out the h1tchr App

Where did I hear that riff before? That chorus sounds like... We've all done it while listening to music, now you can make the connection with the h1tchr App.
Example> The chorus on Foxygen's On Blue Mountain sounds like Elvis Presley's 'Suspicious Minds', The chord structure in the verses sound like The Rolling Stones 'Under My Thumb'
So you think you know music, what are you waiting for? Create your own profile and make your connections.

Also available as a Spotify App, It’s 100% free , Once the app is installed, simply play a song and H1tchr uses the Discogs API to display album credits within Spotify and will pull in the data on the song and artist and give you a better feel for the back story of the band and song. It pulls in data from Wikipedia and Discogs, and the data is quite extensive. Of course, if a band is not available on either of these sites, then H1tchr will not be able to pull in the data, but let’s be honest, almost everything is on Wikipedia so that should not be an issue unless the band is incredibly obscure.

The right side of the screen includes interesting information about the band’s history from Wikipedia, and the right side brings the album’s track list, credits and galleries of the band. This is almost exactly the kind of information that you would find in the liner notes of an album, just brought forward to digital age.
h1tchr is a "new company launched in 2012 by musician and music producer David Pattillo of The Dead Exs,"

Here's a quick run through of the free h1tchr Spotify app. See how wikipedia and album credits just come up when you use our app. Give it a go. We think you will dig it!
