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

music3w

Music3WMusic3W is a music fan site that features a slick purple and yellow cutout style page design. The site is very clean and flavorous, but unfortunately does not look like it's being updated much recently.... 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

medeski martin & wood

medeski martin & woodWe loved the combination of the woodblock type over the psychedelic purple and green rust pattern, but after the intro, once the site flips over to a three-frame design, it lost a little flavor compared to the opening sequence and the promising circle-based navigation.... More

Luaka Bop

Luaka BopThis site for the 10 year old record label (started by David Byrne of Talking Heads fame) began by compiling and promoting native Brazilian "pop" music. Luaka is a paradise of textured wonders, effusing and busting with the vibrant colors and feelings of the South American and Spanish musical peoples. The range of Spanish flavors live on through more musical additions, and through the wonderfully textured and uninhibited design presented in the site. The iconography is excellent, and the variety of designs, for instance, in the "All Our Disks" area, is stupendous. The site deftly illustrates the richness of the label and the music.... More

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

Kashmir

KashmirKashmir is very interface driven, overloading you with buttons and auxiliary information, but this site is for the fans, and as such, it gives them lots of features to play with. Overall, the light blue washes and blurred touches are quite beautiful. Combines Flash and DHTML design work.... More

just for the F of it

just for the F of itJust another really sick animated Flash music site from our falafel-eating, funky-faced, far out friend, Todd Purgason. But this time it's different - this time the site ain't anything you've seen before. So figure out what the hell a fugly fairy really is, and even torch her with a bow and flaming arrow by a belligerent french ferret. And hey, there's cool Easter egg stuff to download, like free MP3s from some bands, and a blog by Mark Hoppus. Did we forget to mention this was a site for Fuse TV? Have fun!... 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

Gorillaz

GorillazGorillaz is a real band represented by fictional animated characters and this is a great virtual reality site and online home for the band. As you swoop through Kong Studios, the nav is a little confusing at times, but they do have a good help area hosted by a monkey... if that makes you feel any better. Contains lots of rooms and entertaining diversions.... More

forest for the trees

forest for the treesAn impressive interactive design concept supported by excellent functionality: this is one of the first 4.0 generation sites that really delivers - concept, visuals, sound, interactivity + variety. The website design plays on the phrase "you can't see the forest for the trees." Individual artists were each commissioned to do an interactive interpretation of a particular track for the Dreamworks album without knowing what the other participants were doing, or how it would all come together. The result is a forest of trees testifying to the inspiration of the visionary soundscapes in Forest for the Trees.... More

Fat Boy Slim : Gutter and StarsFans of Flash will find this site clean, accessible and quietly fun. The interface work is great - emulating equalizer bars - and the color scheme and open spaces combined with great photos make this site a sharp accomplishment.... More
