Check These Links Out!

November 20, 2008

Josh gave us a heads up about an interesting new music site called The Next Big Sound.

The angle that The Next Big Sound takes is that YOU are a LABEL and YOU get to CHOOSE who gets signed.  Andrew at Artists House commented that the one of the coolest things about the site is the simplicity of the whole thing. No bullshit Myspace load times, no Facebook log in, just straight music.

Check it out now, before it blows up. Who knows, it just might.


I had to give out a “hells yes” (i say that aaaall the time) to CNET’s Greg Sandoval, not only for his tasteful facial hair, but for stickin’ it to Steve Jobs about iTunes + DRM.

Apple needs to prove the naysayers wrong and show that the company was never interested in locking customers into buying its music or music players. Apple has to show that it knows the best way to build an empire is to design products people want to play their media on–not players they have to play their media on.

Werd Greg, Werd. Jobs is forgetting that innovation put Apple on top. The music business needs another innovation. Let’s see if Apple rests on their laurels or makes a smart power move in the music business.

    Actually Steve Jobs dislikes DRM, he wrote an open letter about it once…

    Cool link Brad, but I think Jobsy has more power then he lets on.
    Apple is the biggest selling digital music distributor in the world. Record companies look to it as an barometer of their artists success.
    I believe that if He put his foot down he could get the Majors to get on the DRM-Free train.

    You’re absolutely right about Sandoval’s “tasteful facial hair” and his view on Apple’s position on DRM.

    Back to growing my goatee.
