Statistical proof that Republicans “listen to a less diverse collection of music”

Digital Music News recently posted a feature entitled “Republicans Statistically Proven to Be Boring Music Fans…” In it, they graph out statistics collected over years via Echo Nest.

So it seems, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, and Reba McEntire have fans that are more “correlated to Republican” and Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Madonna have fans who are more “correlated to Democrat.” You can check out the piece here.

Facebook geared to change again

Digital Music News recently posted an article on Facebook, its plans to redesign (again), and how this will affect musicians.

I’m not sure what is in store for Facebook, but I do know it’s an ephemeral, unpredictable platform and ye olde website seems to be the most reliable means for sharing one’s art on the Internet.
