Month In Review – September 2010

by Emilio Pérez Miguel on October 1, 2010

Lots of interesting news and events were covered this month, including the launch of Ping (and the initial outcome of its fight for supremacy), MTV’s new-found popularity and the original ad for Google Instant (and the parodies it gave birth to). I also wrote about two soundtrack albums that are certainly not going unnoticed: “The Social Network” (Trent Reznor) and “Tron” (Daft Punk).

Chris Rea was the new artist added to the blog, and Lucas Meyer was the one Uruguayan artist I wrote about in September. I reviewed his album “Un Accidente Feliz” (issued by Esquizodelia Records) here.

Featured startups included Shuffler.fm (the closest thing so far to a Pandora for music blogs) and Flasbck (a cool way to let others see gigs the very same way you saw them – I also managed to interview Mark Williamson, his co-founder). Besides, I reviewed a site named MusicLink.fm that basically lets you stream full albums for free.

And I still cry with laughter when I watch the “The Worst Cover Band In The World” video. I haven’t stopped wondering whether that “rehearsal video” is genuine or not. But I must say I fear the worst…
