Thanks to the forward-thinking, progressive, really up on things, totally rational, and brilliant minds running the RIAA and managing the recording industry in general [Editor's note: managing it right down the toilet where it belongs], Muxtape as we knew and loved it is never coming back.
However, something much cooler (to musicians, anyway) is coming in its place. Muxtape for bands. You can read Justin's really long explanation over at muxtape.com, or I can just tell you that it's basically going to be relaunched as a mini-CMS and music streaming service for bands (presumably unsigned bands) to post their songs, profiles, etc. and share their music with the world.
Kudos, Justin. You have made lemons out of lemonade, and I applaud your efforts to keep going in the face of industry bullshit and try to make something that will actually help actual musicians. Keep up the good work.
What do you think? Has the RIAA gone too far? Does this sound like a useful tool for bands?
