While I know there’s a number of issues with myspace, and some see it more of a hassle than anything else, I’ve found it to be a wonderful tool for discovering a lot of great music.
I’ve been a bit busy of late, and the friend requests have piled up quite a bit. Usually, you can spot the obvious spam requests, but I don’t really get too many of those. I finally got around to checking through a bunch of them. Most are bands/musicians trying to make a connection. Some might be friends of friends’ bands or friends with a new band, but many are just seemingly random. Some are entirely way off base of what I like, but my profile doesn’t really reveal much in music style other than I love music, so I can’t really complain about the requests from bands who’s music just doesn’t quite do it for me. The thing is that I do actually listen to the music of every single band/musician that sends me a friend request, which is why they can pile up if I don’t keep on top of them. If I’m not totally paying attention to the songs playing, then I will hold off adding or denying the request.
I was very pleasantly surprised to listen to Jenny Doveson’s songs.
She’s from Sweden, her page doesn’t reveal much more about her except a performance video on youtube:
I’m looking forward to hearing more….
