Looks like it’s time to check out another new site that aims to collect and curate the world’s music. Soundsgood.co is a French site that’s been around since October of 2014 that emphasizes curated playlists and big, modern visual designs. It also hopes to minimize the work of those building playlists by matching up tracks across an array of services. Say you found a great track on Soundcloud but you’ve already built a playlist on Spotify. Or you’ve got a great collection on YouTube but some of your links mysteriously disappear. Soundsgood currently connects to YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify and Deezer with support in the works for Rhapsody/Napster, Rdio, Xbox Music and Beats Music.

While it sounds great for French hipsters looking for a playlist of dream-pop for their Summer music festival, how does it fare for those of the video game persuasion? Surprisingly, Ubisoft is already there as a music label with playlists from Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity. Beyond that, the pickings are slim but the playlists are pretty good.

Galway to the Galaxy highlights Martin Galway’s Commodore 64 work which is almost completely foreign to me. Bit-nique is an eclectic collection of SNES, PC and arcade favorites from the 90’s. Chiptune Porn is a huge playlist full of the usual suspects and BAGARRE features 90 tracks from one-on-one fighters and character action games. If I may be so bold, I’ll include my own playlist I made while checking out the site for this post. Lounge Land 1-1 is a collection of original pieces and remixes with a jazzy lounge vibe. It’s a playlist I’ve been meaning to make for a long time and Soundsgood gave me the motivation to finally do it.

Despite the slight language barrier of some pages, Soundsgood is really easy to use. Playlists and channels are featured with huge images and the persistent player offers all the controls you’d expect including a little view of the YouTube videos. Something about it inspires artistic creativity even if you’re just pasting in links to Twisted Metal music; it’s very French in that regard. Have any playlists of your own to share? Maybe dress them up on your own Soundsgood page or just link us in the comments.
