After many hours and weeks of work, lots of learning HTML, CSS, and Java Script (the first thing I did was learn what those things are), and digging through the ol’ Chris Merritt filing cabinets, I’ve put together a new MUSIC section on the webbed site.
It is MENTAL. It’s all there. The last 6 Chris Merritt albums UP FOR FREE LISTENING. I’m so excited for you to see it! Check it out here! http://www.chrismerrittmusic.com/blog/sounds. You can also just click on “MUSIC” at the top of the ‘ol blog!
The new MUSIC page features:
- The last 6 Chris Merritt albums with every track free to listen to!
- Facebook “like” your favorite tracks – the song will appear on your Facebook wall with a little player!
- Lyrics for every track!
- Fun Facts on songs, including original demos, behind-the-scenes info, videos, and more!! (Check out the info on The Cult Of Karl for example)
- Album art BERSERK!
- Easy links to iTunes and the Chris Merritt store to buy tracks!
- ….and so much more!!
There’s a bit of a loading time for the pages, so be patient. I’m using Firefox 4, Google Chrome and Safari and it seems to work decently, with an annoying like 7 or 8 second loading time. Also, there may be some kinks to work out still, so if you catch any wrong links, let me know!
I know what you’re thinking. “Chris, you sweet little hairy man. You’ve not only given us a mind-blowing amount of undiscovered, hip, cerebral rock-and-roll music over the last few years, but now you’ve put everything online, in nice little tables, with fun little buttons to press. How can we ever pay you back for this priceless gift? HOW, PLEASE, TELL US???”
Thanks for asking. I do it all in the pursuit of objectively beautiful art and accelerating technology. Well, OK, there is one thing you could do, BUT ONLY SINCE YOU ASKED… Find your favorite tracks. Share the music on your Facebook wall. You can also use Twitter, LinkedIn, or just send the URL to a friend (those are up as well, by the way). This is something of an experiment – I haven’t seen any artists do exactly this kind of thing, and I want to see what happens. I want to make it easy for people to explore the music and get it out to the Universe.
Time for a baff, I’m beefin’, innit. (Time for a shower, I smell unpleasant, don’t I?)
