thoughts on the new hype machine

as annoying as the relaunch of new site was, i gotta say i really like what they've put together. the new dashboard is nutty. firstly, i signed up and got the user name "n". so you can just go to to see all the blogs i'm watching, tracks that i like, people watching me, people i'm watching, and searches i have set up. if someone posts about about one of my about one of my favorite bands, it'll be piped into my dashboard page. if one one of my fave blogs posts a track, it's on the dashboard.
all hype machine pages also have built-in play buttons next to all the tracks. just click play and you'll hear it. click another track and the first one stops while the second one starts. AND you can also grab the rss feed of your own blog list and just pipe it on in to your favorite rss reader. aggregating the , if you will. it's all very easy and saves a ton of time going through blog after blog trying to listen to songs. my one complaint would be that the site is still a little slow, but not terribly so. anyways, very rad. i've already found another lovely track! it's another dan bejar from related jam...

hello, blue roses "shadow falls"
it's not out yet, but you can grab the latest destroyer record .
