Yet Another Slick Site Pushes 'Music Powered by People' Idea
Because Napster, MySpace, iTunes, Pandora, Rhapsody and countless others are perhaps missing something that these people aren't, we announce the arrival of Haystack. You can register as a listener or an artist and toss around really savvy words that we're sure indie purists use all the time, like "tastemakers" and "music stuff."
Haystack even gets all Shakespearean on our asses and makes up its own buzz words: a "stack" is vividly defined on the homepage so there won't be any confusion about why anyone would cognitively pair "haystack" and "music."
When we finally grasped the concept we thought, "Guess every roll in the hay deserves a soundtrack." But we're not sure that's what they were shooting for. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
