Jaspects, The Polkadotted Stripe, Album Release Party & Contest

Jaspects The Polkadotted Stripe

MySpace/Youtube

Something different today. We have the Jaspects. A band from Atlanta that creates a great blend of Funk, Hip-Hop and Techno.  They have recently released their third album “The Polkadotted Stripe” in April, and are promoting it with an album release party.  Their two previous albums “Broadcasting the Definition“(2006) and “Double Consciousness“(2007) has garnered them quite a loyal following.  “The Polkadotted Stripe” will only continue that trend for the band.  One aspect of the band that they are well-known for, is their skill which they blend genres.

Twitter….. Who’s on it

I think that everyone has heard of Twitter at this point. Also they have heard of the great surge in of people using it in recent months. If you’re a normal person, after you sign up, you wonder what’s next. Well…. for the music lover I have complied a list of Soul music artists, on Twitter that will give you a jump start. To be able to have this much access or just this much detail of a artist’s thoughts is great. If you have found others, that I missed, please let me know, and I’ll update the post.
