Music Industry News Network [02-16-2013]
The Internet (February 16, 2013) – Something new is bubbling up from the depths of the Internet. Music critics are calling it, "Something to do." Music fans are excited about the fate of bands being in their hands.
It's a website called muvote (pronounced myo͞ovōt) (and if that doesn't help, think of the words music and vote smashed together).
It's the "hot or not" site for music (mostly independent music). There will never be ads and it's built with 100% heart. Every artist that submits a song is manually reviewed by a real human for quality assurance purposes.
Two artists are randomly displayed on the main page. The visitor then has the opportunity to listen to both artists and select the artist that they feel is the best, out of the two. Then, two more artists will be display and the voting continues, indefinitely. The artists with the most votes get pushed to the top of the "Discover" page. Or, as some call it, "The page where dreams come true."
Even artists without a lot of fans, but with a lot of luck, could be featured on the site, on the "Noteworthy" page.
A random indie music blog said, "muvote is a fresh way to hear new music random style, and help the songs/artists you like get a little more buzz."
This new random music discovery engine is currently seeking new artists. To apply, visit http://muvote.com/entry-form/.
