The impact that the internet has had on the music industry is huge, both good and bad. One of the good impacts are the distribution possibilities of small bands with little to none budget for marketing. Especially when using sites like MySpace and we have heard of bands being signed up after agents have heard them through the Internet.
Another sample is close to us, the www.icelandicmusic.is – a one stop resource on music from Iceland, such as Björk, Ampop, Sigur Rós and Mum to mention few. I am going to have a close eye on that site being a guitar player myself.
