I’ve been following this site for a few months now. It’s a hip little mp3 aggregator that links to blogs that post music tracks and lets you search them by artist, or title, or whatever.
It’s been a great way for me quickly listen to new artists, find classic tracks, or get a taste of what’s hip and happening in the music world.
A month or so ago they underwent a major redesign, adding a ton of graphics and new functionality. In many ways it wasn’t really as good as it was before, but I figured they were succumbing to either real or perceived music industry influence. I didn’t use it as much, but it was still my go to place when I needed to find a song fast.
Today I went there and the site has be “re-designed” yet again. This time as a mid-nineties style text driven page, that’s about as bare bones as you can possibly imagine. I think it may actually be an improvement, but you still have to wonder what’s going on.
Anyone know the scoop?
UPDATE: And a day later they’re back to normal. I guess it was just a hiccup, although it was kind of fun seeing a modern site go all text for a while.
They do seem to have kept the functional streamlining and upgrades.
