Once the go to home for anyone in a band or with a music project, the demise of Myspace has been like the inevitable flow of thick molten rock down a slight incline. On the upside, at least it was at the expense of evil media mogul Rupert Murdoch who took the hit of buying at nearly $600 million and selling last year for $35 mill to Justin Timberlake and Specific Media.
Since then, not much has been heard, but now it has emerged like a beautiful butterfly from a dormant cocoon. Justin has clearly been spending some free time brushing up on his HTML skillz.
Myspace.com actually looks like a compelling and vibrant destination once again. Gone is the clunky, confusing, interface with dubious media player and endless blinking text. Now we have a much more sleek site geared up to play not just music but video, with charts, news and all kinds of showbiz type stuff.
They've gone for the pictorial "TheVerge.com" style and I must say it looks pretty compelling. Though one pundit unkindly said -"getting a new haircut and a few new clothes to win back the spurned lover can be seen as a bit pathetic", but to be honest, with over 50 million visitors a month, its still clearly got a little something.
You can still sign up and do your band thing, though the main section pages seem dominated by the usual Nicki Minj and Katy Perry pop fluff.
