Dave Barnes

Dave BarnesGreat hand-drawn chalk lines for navigation and typography. High clarity despite the haphazard appearance. Soft rock acoustic not our thing, but design-wise this site rocks hard.... More

The Script

The ScriptAn excellent site for the UK band, The Script. Nice grid-based 3-column design, and we just love the contrast of the extra large animated header, and change in depth perception. Great feel, good use of space, friendly and fun.... More

Nonesuch Records

Nonesuch RecordsThe redesigned Nonesuch Records website features a complete overhaul of the site’s content, features, design and technology to provide Nonesuch and its artists with a robust, attractive new platform to directly interact with fans—introducing them to new artists and genres; supporting their exploration via blogs, radio players, videos and music tracks; and then driving them to purchase. The entire site is built on a customized Drupal-based content management platform that can be easily updated and fully supported by Nonesuch’s own resources.... More

Gullyland

Gully - AnalectesThere are several things to like about this music site for composer & sound designer, Philippe Gully. The site is all about simplicity and navigation, and the interface responds to Philippe Gully's three usage requirements: 1) As few clicks as possible. 2) No classic sound player, and 3) it tracks the listening time on each song of the album. By the way, did you notice he doesn't even hit you with music until you click something? (Kudos!) In his spare time, Gully works in multimedia, videos, movies, and online projects – and you can see his new portfolio, here.... More

Au Revoir Simone

Au Revoir SimoneA gorgeous full-screen collage design for a sensual, delicate group of three indie musicians from Brooklyn, New York. The full-page collages hit all the right notes, emoting a soft and natural feeling, combined with a smattering of photos of the beautiful pop group. Wispy, but solid and grounded with flattering, feminine strength.... More

Radiohead In Rainbows

Radiohead - In RainbowsAs newsworthy as any new music launch, Radiohead is revolutionizing the music industry by (not selling) their new album (launching Oct 10th) at a price of your choosing. Tom Yorke does it again, and now Radiohead is using their influence (and trusting a loyal fan-base to abuse the power of the web) to throw a rock 'n roll style monkey wrench into the gear-box of the industry's corporate machine. Kudos.... More

Bandpush

BandpushBandpush is a strategic publicity campaign that helps to increase awareness for independent artists, record companies and corporate partners in Canada. Basically, musicians compile a demo and submit it for their next event... while Bandpush gathers support from sponsors and drums up the brands together with the tunes. We really loved this textural site design using yellow and distressed brown tones. It also has a perfect complimentary use of typography. The nicely layered page features a mix of aged, distressed and uneven textures to make this page simply touchable... stroke it. Love it.... More

Salbourg

Salbourg (Dance Party)Salbourg is young, fun, weekly dance party based in Vancouver... and while the site is quite bare and serves mostly as a calling card and repository of party flyers (albeit some pretty cool ones with hand-drawn fonts), we really liked the simple collage single-page design featuring a skull, lipstick and lace dreamt up by 19 year-old art, print and web designer Jesse Kanda (see link below)....

The Black Seeds

The Black SeedsBeen a while since we've posted ANY music band sites... They just all seem so similar and blah... and to be honest, this one doesn't totally rock us either. We're just big fans of collage design right now, and anything that has animals and plants instead of guns and skulls is definitely "in". We also liked the gold type on black colors... and when you mix a space-scene background with cut-out palm trees and an Ipaka... it's a little silly, but, at least you have something different....

Liveroom

Liveroom.TVHaving already survived its first year, Liveroom.TV is the new site of the first-of-its-kind free online music venue. Liveroom brings gigs and shows from the best new indie bands & artists right to your little computer screen (and in widescreen too!). They record all the bands at the Liveroom studio in North London, and then mix, edit and broadcast the (mostly) unsigned bands over the net. Cool music, in a cool online package—with nice little collages... power to the music!... More

MTV 2007

MTV 2007Hunh? What's this? A new MTV.com that's all about music and the videos? What a concept! Actually, the site is extremely well conceived... A one-stop black metallic video playing jukebox that lets you view more videos during lunch break than are aired on MTV over the course of an entire month. Real simple (and smart) navigation lets you search video and TV content by subject or category in a single click, while the show news and extra content (also all in video format) is neatly tucked away. After 10 years of trying to muck around with the web making content appear "cool", they finally got it... It's all about their ultimate content; the music videos!... More

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

"My Life" is a very interesting music site design with some great Flash elements, UI, navigation, and branding. Revisiting this album which originally came out in 1981, this is the first time complete and total access to original tracks with remix and sampling possibilities have been officially offered online. Lots of thought has been given to how a user will listen to music while surfing, with attention given to both the music play downloads and meta navigation. Excellent all around web site housed in a nice grid-based design.... More
