blocsonicRadio Wax MP3 player

The blocSonic netlabel has hooked up a Wax MP3 player for their stuff, like the player for Magnatune’s music or the player for uptempo net music that I hand-curated. The player is at http://blocsonic.com/radio. Their blog post about it is at http://blocsonic.com/post/introducing-blocsonic-radio.

This player is designed for music that is good but unfamiliar. It guides the listener through songs without requiring the listener to know anything them in advance. So it’s a natural fit for netlabels, who are long on taste and short on marketing.

The player is a new kind of music experience that is unlike webcasts, music blogs, MP3 player software, or podcasts. It’s free and open source. See github to get the core package. If you want a hand setting it up, don’t hesitate to ask.
