Check out this great cover of U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday” by Saul Williams, produced and arranged by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. The song is from Saul’s latest album “The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!”.
Also this is the first time I’ve tried out thesixtyone, a really cool music discovery service that helps artists distribute their music. So far it looks really great.
Musicians upload their music for listening, but rather than allowing the Simon Cowells of the world decide which songs go on the homepage, the listeners do. How, you say? If you like a song you’ve found on thesixtyone, just click the “bump” button to increase its bump count. Doing so will cost you points, but if songs you bump get bumped by others, you can earn more points! Collecting points increases your level and reflects your skill in picking top songs in your favorite genre!
