Mashable reports that lots of bands have been turning to Turntable.fm to connect with fans and to premiere new tunes. On Wednesday, Ra Ra Riot hosted their very own room, where bassist Mathieu Santos premiered his upcoming solo album, Massachusetts 2010.
That album isn't available until August 2nd, but this was a smart way for Santos to present it to fans. Go here to take a "spin" at Turntable.fm.
Here's some background info: www.Turntable.fm is a series of web-based chatrooms in which "DJs" take turns spinning tunes, which other users rank as "awesome" or "lame." "Awesome" votes help DJs to accrue points, which elevate them to more elaborate avatars. The service is still in beta form, but it's cool, nonetheless.
