Hi! It's Tuesday, and I had plans to originally show you some of my
favorite album artwork this week. Then just a few days ago I downloaded a
new music app and thought it would be much more fun to show a couple of
my favorite music related apps.
My first is one called Band Of The Day. Actually Mallory's sister Sarah told me to download it. They post a new band
every day, but what's so great? It gives you everything you
could want to know about the band: bios, reviews,
videos, albums, etc. You can even press the little play symbol and sample about 6 songs for free. They even have a page called Buzz which gives
you tweets from twitter users about the band or artist. This such a great app
for anyone who really loves finding new music.
The next app is Daytrotter. If you happen to not know what
Daytrotter is, it's a studio/company who brings in bands or musicians
and records 3 or 4 live songs of the artist and releases them to the
public. I love hearing live songs much more than studio,
so it's really great. Occasionally you'll get acoustic versions or a
song that has a few variances from the original studio verison which is
always fun. They also have an in-house illustrator that draws all of the musicians. It used to be completely free, but they now charge a
$2/month fee, which is still completely worth it. Some
of my favorites include Colour Revolt, O'Brother, and Copeland.
The next and final app is what caused me to switch my
blog subject for the week. It's called Figure. I downloaded it just a
few days ago and have spent way more time on that I should have. I was up
until 2 a.m. last night playing with it. Basically it gives you the ability to create your own music,
digitally. You have the ability to create a full
song in just a few minutes. The layout is super
simple. So for those of you who aren't musically inclined or haven't ever
messed with music software, don't be afraid, it's very user friendly. It
also only costs 99 cents in the app store. The only downfall is there is no way to save your
songs or share them with others since it's only the first
version. Hopefully this is something they'll add
for later versions. It is a great way to pass the time if you are waiting to meet
someone or anything like that.
I was really excited for this post. Enjoy!
