Redesigned the website

We have been hard at work on the Wake Up Bed­head web­site, and we’re proud to announce it’s new look and lay­out. Face­book com­ment­ing is now avail­able, which allows for you to com­ment on our blog and see the com­ment thread on Face­book as well as in the blog.

SEO optimized

We spent a great deal of time going through the web­site and pro­vid­ing on-page opti­miza­tion, so we’ll be watch­ing the traf­fic to see if it’s get­ting more tar­get­ed over the next few days.


Album update:

We cur­rent­ly have eight songs left to mix. Here’s a final unmas­tered mix of one of our tunes:
You Don’t Belong Here by wake­upbed­head

The current state of alternative rock music

The fol­low­ing arti­cle from Bill­board online sug­gests that Warn­er Bros. Music may be aban­don­ing rock music. This would seem to imply that rock music is dead. I don’t think that’s the case. Instead, I feel that too much of the same sound has tak­en over the radio waves. Big labels need to learn how to tar­get niche mar­kets. They could be increas­ing their cat­a­logs, while mak­ing less mon­ey (per artist) with more artists (greater vari­ety.) That could amount to more mon­ey over­all. Has no one over there at Warn­er read Chris Ander­son­’s arti­cle about free?


Alternative music and other genres

I like alter­na­tive indie rock music, but I know plen­ty of oth­er peo­ple like dance, coun­try and elec­tron­i­ca music. It seems that with the Inter­net as it is these days, any­one can find the very spe­cif­ic genre that they pre­fer over any oth­er and dive deep into it. Has the Inter­net changed tra­di­tion­al mar­ket­ing enough that the labels are unable to keep up?


Where there is a will, there is a way

Regard­less of the state of rock music in the main stream, I’m more con­fi­dent now in my abil­i­ty to use the Inter­net to find an audi­ence than ever before. Does any­one else have any thoughts about the state of rock music? I believe there is an audi­ence for alter­na­tive rock music, and I think it’s a bet­ter audi­ence than ever before. Am I wrong?
