Ok y’all, so The Hype Machine is a blog aggregator (not to be confused with the fearsome bog alligator), which takes the most recently posted songs from about 1500 different music blogs and adds them into a database, where people can listen and vote them up. It’s an amazing way to discover new music, and it’s also one of the most powerful tools for generating artist buzz and attracting blog attention. The Guardian named it one of the 100 most essential websites of 2009, CNN’s done’s pieces on it, it’s been called “the future of all media”, etc.
So when The Wounded Jukebox posted on The Gold Coast last month, our song got added into the Hype Machine! This was very exciting for us.
Now we have a task for you. It’s incredibly easy but also hugely important. Here’s what we need you to do…
DJ (our publicist) also conveniently created a facebook event detailing it further.
We need as many people to do this as possible to provide an initial boost so that blogs and other listeners will notice us. Nobody listens to a song with 20 hearts on hypem. A song with 200, however, attracts significantly more heat.
Do this and we will love you forever.
We also have several show proposals in the works. We’re peeing-our-pants-excited, and we’ll let you know as soon as we confirm a show.
