"Viinyl Gives Every Song Its Own URL"
Launched last week, the Montreal-based startup site Viinyl propounds the novel theory that the problem with online music is that the pictures aren’t big enough. Each song registered with the site gets a single-serving URL of its own–Ali Milner’s “I Dare You,” for instance, is http://idareyou.viinyl.com/ , and Armistice’s “Mission Bells” is http://missionbells.viinyl.com/ . Every song’s page features a single large image–like an old-fashioned vinyl record’s sleeve, get it? Beyond that, they can include streaming and/or downloadable copies of the song, embedded videos, biographical information, links to buy music or get more information, and social-networking buttons out the wazoo.
