I found this site yesterday and it’s definitely worth a look if you’re into music at all. The idea is pretty simple. They post a title or 2 for potential songs on the front page, people have about a week to write, record and submit a song for the contest and then we get to listen to them all and vote on which one we like best. All types of music are welcomed, there aren’t many rules and anybody can enter a tune.
This week’s fights are songs called “More Than Soup” and “Toronto Star.” There are some fairly good tracks fighting in both but there are also some really really bad ones. “Toronto Star” features everything from saxophone and piano music, to a funny hip-hop deal about a band traveling to Toronto to try to get famous, to some nice acoustic stuff to one of the worst metal songs I’ve ever heard in my entire life.
More than soup is sporting some really poorly produced tracks, including one from a guy that I’ve actually heard of who I know can do way better than that, but there’s some pretty passable stuff battling it out there too so you’ll be able to pick a winner, even if it’s the lesser of the 10 or so evils fighting it out.
One thing I don’t like is that you can only see 1 fight at a time so if you know there’s more than 1 going on in a given week, you have to keep going back to the site again and again until the other one comes up. Still lots of fun and I suggest checking it out, you’ll hear some neat music and it’s a damn fine time waster.
