Introducing Musebin…

A couple of days ago I was a tad bored at work, surfing around the web waiting for a customer to come in when I started looking at Wired, always provides me with a daily dose of “oooohs” with shiny new things and new gadgets and services.

So imagine my “ooooh” factor when they posted about Musebin, a new “one line music news and reviews” service – like Twitter, but specifically for music and with ratings.

It leads to a shortness that many mainstream journalists would do well to learn from –

Below are some of my favourite gems:
Of Flaming Lips’ “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”:

Both sad and joyous, Yoshimi is recommended to anybody possessing a heart and a love of psychedelic rock.

Of M83’s “Saturdays=Youth:

Saturdays… is an album best listened to alone, or at 3am at an open-minded party

Of Ben Folds’ “Way To Normal”:

Your typical Ben Folds album: sarcastic, vaguely angry piano man writes biting satire and blunt irony. Sweet Regina Spektor duet though.

A few things still need working out (the search is incredibly slow), but on the whole it looks set to be one tool that will be gaining a huge dedicated fanbase like Twitter has done recently.

If you want an invitation to join, I have 8 remaining. Drop me a line by email and I’ll fire one your way by the end of the week.

Thanks for the writeup Phil. Search is a big priority. We hope to get it working nicely soon.
