musicplasma (http://www.musicplasma.com) has a lot of interesting potential. You enter a musician or band into the search and you get a visual result showing similar bands arranged by how alike they are and showing visual links based on style and relative popularity. Not sure how music is judged to be similar, or how popularity is calculated. I've already found a handful of bands that I need to check out. And the application is real eye-candy and very configurable. Recommended!
