In the age of the Internet it is overwhelming to try and find new music. Music aggregators have helped to achieve some sort of solution to this problem but they are normally hit and miss considering the music they feature. A blog that some friends introduced me to has shown me what a great music aggregate can be and the amazing potential behind it. The site is called thissongissick.com. This site was started by a Colorado student and is an effort to try to bring the music he loves to as many people as possible. The main musical genres represented are electronic and hip hop but feature different songs that would appeal to any music lover.

The site is organized very effectively from an advertising standpoint because the songs are given a lot of space on the page for artwork and promotion. Ads are place on the side supporting the artists and gives the musicians priority over the way their songs are portrayed on the site. I believe this is the way artists should be able to promote their work in this digital era, coming from a passionate musician. The blog writing is very simple and is written by the creator of the site so he is passionate about every single song that is published on the site. It’s the proper way to distribute digital music and should be seen as an example of the right way to show people new music. I highly recommend visiting the site and giving the songs a chance. Again the site is thissongissick.com.
