Google Magnifier has music downloads and reviews

Google’s Magnifier will offer free tracks recommended by Google’s music team. (Google)
Google has launched an online music magazine, Google Magnifier, that will let beta users of its Google Music service find new songs and free tracks.

Users of the company’s beta music site will be able to add daily recommended tracks to their online libraries for free, Google said in a blog post Wednesday.

The site will also include features such as interviews and videos. In fact, Google has a full editorial staff working on the page, writing reviews and hand-picking which artists and tracks to highlight.

If you’ve been lucky enough to score an invite to the music service, then Magnifier is definitely worth checking out, if only to broaden your horizons. Thursday’s featured track is from electronic music artist Amon Tobin; the inaugural featured artist of the week is Louisville rock band My Morning Jacket.
