For those who crave new Music but are not quite sure where to look there is now a great solution. Myspoonful is a site designed for the busy, interested and lazy indie-music enthusiast alike. Each week a team of “expert music writers” present three picks for consideration. Each week’s top picks are accessed on both the homepage of this uber-user-friendly site and conveniently in the subscriber’s email box. Subscriptions are free and so are downloads from the site. Amazingly so, this is all legal.
Straight from the start, the homepage displays the latest selections for visitors. mySpoonful boasts a just-enough-information approach for prospective subscribers to get a taste of new music. The first thing you see is the musician’s picture with the title of the featured track underneath. The origins and short description of artistic flavor are also listed which can be considered before the actual listen. If the song hits the spot then listeners can share it via Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Digg, just to name a few. The songs can even be downloaded for free right there on the homepage. If further reading on the artist is desired, a simply click on “read more” will be the fix. This will bring those hungry site googlers to the artist’s page where they’ll find additional information including tour dates, website address and more. For more downloads on the artist in interest mySpoonful will redirect traffic to iTunes.
The best things in life are free, right? Well, so is mySpoonful. The site deserves a peek or two from the people who enjoy indie-music and especially from those who don’t know where to find it or who don’t have the time to look. Navigating through the expert’s picks is quick and easy. What’s really great is that the music posted is first reviewed by the site's writers and then again by the public. All FREE.
