I found some great music websites and new bands over the last few days. First of all, the site http://www.audiri.com (now stage.fm) is a great place to find new unsigned bands and download music for free. The site is very easy to use and it requires no software or logins. You simply type in a band that you like and it recommends unsigned artists that sound similar.
Two great acts that I found are
Get them on your ipod and spread the word.
Even more good music news, according to hitchaser.com an unsigned band reached the top 40 singles in the UK. What this may mean is that instead of hearing all the same songs on every radio station we may actually hear some new stuff.
The charts started counting downloads instead of just record sales. The tracking of this channel can seriously flip the power in the industry and allow bands to approach record companies with much more clout. Rock and Scroll.
