*I’ve written about or mentioned the crowdsourcing of various elements of music many times in the past, including linking to SlicethePie, a site that allows fans to finance bands they think can make it. The Telegraph reports on SlicethePie’s progress. [largehearted boy]
*In Europe: Rise of the female DJ?
*The A.V. Club pans Mates of State’s newest album, and blames it on a “suburban slump” (aka having a kid).
*Sorta off topic: DoesFollow.com – a simple tool that lets you check who’s listening to whom on Twitter. [mediaeater] Also, Crowdstatus allows you to create Twitter groups. I haven’t tried to use it yet. Generally, I dislike large groups.
