I'm old here, so what is... 'Oh, Wrinklepaws'?

Some friends of mine are in an underground indie rock band and have completed their first EP. It sounds very professional even if it was mixed on ProTools and recorded in a home studio.

Anywho, they came to me because they know I read a lot of mp3 blogs like ILM and Stereogum. I suggested that they send out music samples to all the major tastemakers, which they did -- but no response as of yet.

Then I found another intriguing option, for $25 they can be the band of the week on Scenestars, a fave mp3 blog of mine:
http://scenestars.net/bandspot/index.php

What do you think, is the exposure worth $25? I mean, they could just post their music on the YSI thread here for free.. Does anyone know how much traffic Scenestars gets or how many downloads they can expect in a week?

I think they should do it as Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, and CYHSY are all prominently featured and they are looking to do a similar grassroots viral DIY thing to get label attention.

These Scenestar folks have a pretty high profile so some industry people must listen to what their flogging. Do you think journos will take us less seriously if it's a paid promotion? I have mixed feelings, free would be ideal, but they are not in a position to hire a PR person.

thx in advance,
W

okay here is how you become big on "the mp3blogs".

1) email the "big" mp3blogs personalised emails, and tell them you are giving them an "exclusive" song to post. send link to myspace/website/whatever. tell them who you sound like - bonus points if it's Sufjan/Jenny Watson/Rilo Kiley/Nick Drake. offer to send them CD.

2) email the smaller mp3blogs personalised emails, with a link to where they can download the album. send link to myspace/website/whatever. tell them who you sound like - bonus points if it's Sufjan/Jenny Watson/Rilo Kiley/Nick Drake.

3) profit

mp3blogs in general have TERRIBLE quality control, and many basically post anything that sounds like a good/popular band. they are trying to post stuff their readers will like more than anything that is excellent per se. also they prefer to post something no one has posted before, rather than something that is particularly awesome.

paying for coverage on mp3blog sidebars seems retarded to me, but what do i know.

Scenestars charging money is bullshit .... your idea that blog payola = "diy grassroots" is nearly equally misguided


-- Renard (drenard...), April 5th, 2006.
Two thoughts:

1) I've never heard of Scenestars, and I'm no stranger to MP3 blogs,

and

2) This sounds like the latest version of the "put your crappy indie band on our crappy CD compilation that we're gonna, like, shop to, like, The Music Industry (tm)". (Translation: the CD gets placed on consignment in a bunch of shops where no one buys it, and sent to record labels who immediately chuck the package in the recycle bin reserved for unsolicited material.)

ok i am looking at scenestars for the first time in a while, and right now, in april of 2006, its front page has: love is all, clap your ass say woo, and a bunch of 'look, i get to go to a conference' life-drops. and the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. oh and some press releasey things about sufjan stevens and beck.

so wrinklepaws, i guess if your friend's band wants to be at the zeitgeist of six months ago, this $25 thing sounds like the perfect opportunity.

Matthew wouldn't take $25 to post an MP3 unless two blogs that get signifantly less readers than him had already done it. Then he could "discover" payola and tell all his fans about it.

-- Dom Passantino (juror...), April 5th, 2006.
It's my blog, so I guess I'll explain the deal -

You may have noticed the blogads banners on most reputable mp3 sites...

This is where the big 5 record companies buy space to advertise new records from their artists. Elefant, Flaming Lips, Beth Orton, I can;t remmeber all of the ones that have been featured in the last few months...

I get about 30 emails a week from independent bands asking me to listen to their music. I also get about 10 CD's in the mail from labels and PR companies. I can't listen to it all. The $25 basically gives you premium space on a blog that gets up to 4000 hits a day and since we host the music, it covers bandwidth costs.

All in all, it's a pretty good deal.

-- Rachel Hurley (rache...), April 5th, 2006.
A good deal, huh? Maura said it best up above: "if your friend's band wants to be at the zeitgeist of six months ago."

I'm sure the day will come when sounding "six months ago" will be all the rage, but the cycle hasn't sped up that much yet. The primary flaw that Scenestars has always had (above many, many others) is that it's a hanger-on blog.

Giving $25 to Scenestars could be better sent mailing 25 cdr's to 25 other mp3 blogs.

To be serious for a second: if you want to spend some money promoting your music online, spend a little bit (a very little bit) more and buy an ad banner somewhere. I guess I don't know how this'll end up being presented, but in concept, it reeks of desperation--"We weren't good enough to get an MP3blog to actually post our music of their own free will (!!!) so we have paid them to do so." Now, if you can work them in seamlessly like radio stations do (uh, in the sense that it's all paid for, I guess), that's one thing. But if there's a separate "paid for" section, no one in their right mind would check it out. Maybe it's designed to trick people who are just using Mp3 aggregators, in which case good, but otherwise it's just a cordoned-off "bad and lame" area. Play a few more gigs and buy an ad banner instead. You can get one at a site of similar size for $350 a month and can doubtless work out a weekly rate if you want to.

I mean, you may as well just be writing those awful promo/bio sheets labels send out with advance cds. They obviously pay people to create those things, right?

I'm not going to get all soapboxy about the "inherent purity" of weblogging (it's an argument that's full of holes), but I think there's a Grand Canyon-sized chasm of difference between gushing about a band on a blog and shilling for that band after pocketing their $25.

Ok, I admit it. I've fallen victim to the hype. I really love the CYHSY. I even wrote them an email begging to get a pass into their sold out show in Amsterdam back in February, to no avail. They played SXSW but I had a previous engagement. They're scheduled to play my birthday in Nashville on April 21st - they can make it up to me for not getting me into their show in Holland by inviting me to the show at my old stomping ground, Vanderbilt University. I discovered the internet in their computer lab back in 1993. ICQ anyone?

JW (ex machina), Wednesday, 26 April 2006 20:48 (sixteen years ago) link


However, Chris from GvB introduced me to Tapes 'n Tapes at SXSW. Not their music, but the actual band. I was immediately drawn to the drummer becasue he looks so much like Jake Vest from Augustine. Anyway, even though I know they are becoming the next over-hyped internet band, they were really cool guys, even though I think I slurred all over them. So, when I got back to Memphis I took the time to check out their 2005 album The Loon. It's all I've been listening to for the past week. It's like a mixture of Modest Mouse, the Pixies and Pavement. It's really good stuff and these guys totally deserve to be overhyped!!!

Don't even bother to try to read it unless you have an advance degree in economics.

(Update: I've read more of it now and it really is very interesting. But it all goes back to my biggest argument against the study of any kind of philosophy, if it isn't directly applicable to your life and you are able to gauge it's real life affects - then wtf is the point, other than to redirect your time into something that keeps you from dealing with your real problems!

...Participate in Indie Impact Memphis Seminar and Showcase!!

If you are a musician you should really take advantage of this opportunity to network. If there are four people in your band, it's 25 bucks each! Did you read the list? Not only are there a lot of well connected industry people from Memphis attending, there are a lot of people you will probably never have another opportunity to be in the same room with. Don't be a dumbass.

Glengarry Glen Ross was just on tv, and I couldn't stop thinking:

from 'rachel and the city':

"The way that I was laying, I was snuggled into a pillow that blocked them from my view, which I was actually thankful for, but there was no mistaking what was going on. Once the realization hit me, I began going through scenarios in my mind of what I should do. Sit up and scold them? Pretend to continue to sleep? Make a noise so that they know I am awake? Get up and go into the bathroom?

The last idea was sounding pretty good because, of course, I had to pee really bad. I just had to find the courage to stand up and go to the bathroom. While I was looking for it, their whispers became more and more audible, well, at least to me. Client guy would whisper something to chatty girl, which I could clearly hear and in her highest sorority girl voice she kept saying, "What?"

Which made me really want to si up and yell, "He said blah, blah, blah, you stupid bith!." (that was not a typo!)

Instead, what happened next was that client guy said something so lame to chatty girl, that I accidentally cracked up. I immediately recovered and turned it into a cough, but I think the sentiment was understood, because the performance was over. And so, at that point, I did what most people do after sex, I got up and went to the bathroom."

From the Wikipedia entry for The Diplomats:

Slang

Along with their unconventional rhyming style, one of the defining elements of the Diplomats' music is their distinctive slang they have incorporated into their lyrics. Expressions such as "doggie", "Ay!", "no homo", "scooby snacks", "hen fap", "piff," "huff," "u mad?", "move the movement", "off' wit' Ya' Kufi Smacker", "duck tales", "OH WRINKLEPAWS," "family matters", and "coochie rap" are known to have originated in Dipset lyrics. They also coined the greeting, "What's Really Good?", which is often shortened to "Whats good?".

I often feel a lot of sympathy for Tuomas for having to be "the dude known for defending masturbating in front of a baby" right up to the point where I remember that he was defending masturbating in front of a baby.
