New App Automatically Recognizes Album Covers
The Shazam of album art is ideal for diligent crate diggers
A new app is being billed as “the Shazam of album covers,” and we’re all for it. The new app is called Record Player and it was designed with Glitch by Patrick Weaver.
The app utilizes Google Cloud Vision API and the Spotify API to automatically recognize album cover artwork and direct you to the album on Spotify. The app seems like the perfect tool for avid music fans and regular vinyl crate diggers who may want to preview an album that catches their eye in a store so they can check it out before purchasing it.
Interest in vinyl records has soared in recent years, especially due to events like Record Store Day and their placement in big retailers. According to Billboard and Nielsen Music, vinyl LP sales have reached a record high, accounting for 14 percent of all U.S. physical album sales in 2017, an 11 percent increase from 2016. You can check out the top 10 best-selling vinyl LPs of 2017 in the U.S. here, and check out some new and notable vinyl releases from last month here.
