Follow Your Nose -- a choose your own musical adventure

I love this idea from Merlin Mann and Do By Friday: the “Follow Your Nose” playlist…

  1. Pick a song you love and start a playlist
  2. Go to the artist’s page and view the Related Artists/Fans Also Like section – then pick a group you aren’t familiar with…
  3. Go to their page and start listening to their top songs & add one you like to your playlist.
  4. Repeat 2 and 3 from that artist page, building out your playlist until you are bored or hit an artist where you can’t do #2.

Almost like a choose your own music musical adventure. So much fun!

Here’s my first attempt:

Some intense lighting effects at Interpol really messed with your vision.

Announcing 7-Day Music Club

I’m pleased to announce a new project I am launching with a few long-time music loving friends: 7-Day Music Club.

The premise: we feel that the current digital age of music has not only damaged the album as a collection of songs, but our relationship to it and the artist. That feeling of holding the album in hand, pouring over the lyric sheets and inserts, and repeated/focused listens – are all a thing of the past for many people.

Our plan: 7-Day Music Club is a community that will celebrate albums as a social, shared experience through focused listening and storytelling. Each week we will focus on one crucial album from our collection to encourage a deep, 7-day focused listening session and conversation.

Our full site – including a blog, newsletter, and message board – will launch in early May. Visit today to sign up for our newsletter and be notified when we launch!

Got my copy of 3 Feet High and Rising today. So amazing! Transported back to my early teenage years when it first came out — the whole album has held up very well. 🎵
