You can access the slide-out promo ad by logging in to your artist dashboard (https://dashboard.earbits.com/dashboard/login), and setting it up is simple:
The wait is over! The Earbits iPhone app is available now!
If you haven’t heard the news, the Earbits iPhone app is awesome. It will analyze the music from your phone and recommend channels you’ll like from over 400 genre-based selections.

We help you discover new music that you may not find on other platforms, and make it easy to connect with the artist – just touch the G button, and you can instantly join a mailing list, follow on Twitter, and more.
Barons of Hiddenhausen, is a mysterious and hidden secret, with it’s origins in Vienna. Although the project sounds like a full-fledged band, the mastermind behind the project is one person: Moritz Kofler. Kofler is no stranger to the genre – after he recorded “World Withdrawal,” he collaborated with Digital Noise Academy in L.A., a project by Ken Andrews (Failure, Beck, A.P.C. NIN), Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker The Star, Courtney Love, Melissa Auf Der Maur) and others. That experience shows in this record.

It’s been a while since rock music has sounded the way Stars In Stereo plays it. The group approaches its songs with a firm grasp on gritty rock instincts as well as a innate understanding of clean pop sensibilities. The main attribute of Stars In Stereo, the band’s recently released self-titled album, is that its particular style is difficult to pin down. It’s not totally heavy and not totally soft, but more a combination of the two than some strange middle-ground.

This is a guest post by Marcus Taylor, founder of Venture Harbour, a digital marketing agency that specializes in working with brands in the entertainment industries.
Collectively, Google and Facebook probably own more data on market supply and demand patterns than anyone else. What many people do not realize is that much of this data is publicly available. For a bit of fun I decided to see what patterns I could find about the music industry in Google and Facebook’s pool of user behavior data.
#1 Less people want to buy music, but the same amount are trying to sell it.
Rabbit & The Hare is proof that good things can happen on Craigslist. The band formed after singer/songwriter Neill MacCallum posted an ad in NYC’s section of the website in search of a “female multi-instrumentalist.” Marisa Duchowny, a person that happens to fit both of those requirements, also happened to read and respond to that post. Just like that, with the strange power of the internet, a duo was born. Marisa became the Rabbit, Neill the Hare.

Embarrassingly enough, when asked to write a review of Bob Wiseman‘s latest solo release, “Some Wise Guy”, I had no idea who he was. So before agreeing to something I couldn’t stick to with any degree of precision or integrity, I listened to the record. It’s at this point that I became pretty intimidated to write this review. Wiseman’s music is decidedly educated and avant… however…after listening again and again I realized it’s not the kind of art pop that talks down to you, rather the type that invites you into the party. Once you get the joke too, you’re on the inside and it’s smooth sailing from there.
