The Next Big Sound is a pretty cool site. Such a simple concept and so viral. You can either create an account as an artist and upload up to four tracks, or you can be an A&R scout and sign-up bands to your virtual label.
The player swiftly plays tracks you choose to listen to, filtering them by genre, and when a song grabs your attention you simply click on ‘sign this artist’. When others sign your bands you earn points. And voila!
Don’t know if this will really get bands noticed but playing around with the site sure is fun and addictive. There doesn’t seem to be that many bands on board for the moment, I would say a couple of hundred, so it might be a good idea to try it out with your own songs.
Gigdoggy has a couple of songs up there too. Please sign us! We are in dire need a record deal…
