The strange thing is the fact that the newest ones are managing to deliver ever improving levels of cool, which the earlier generations couldn’t match. MySpace we’re looking at you.
Musikki is the latest in the genre, and it’s nice. Based of course on the video content already available on the mighty services like Vimeo , Vevo and YouTube, it nevertheless manages to wrap it all up in a very appealing skin which encourages the visitor to immerse themselves in their favorite artist’s work.
As well as a nicely written bio, and a selection of video tracks for instant sampling, there are also links to the artist Twitter stream and a very valuable Upcoming Shows widget, so you can find out where they’re playing next or near you.
