We're Doin' a Podcast
Aw snap, it's the first one...
Yee-haw! We're doing a series of audio interviews with
local musicians and bands. Look for a brand new podcast every month. This month we chatted with Josh Harty
, a Madison-based alt-country artist.
We talked to Josh about his background, music influences and style, and opinion on digital music.

The Dev Cave
The latest from our developer team...
Forget man cave, mantuary, or manspace. Let's hear it for "Dev Cave," a monthly update from our lead developer.
"This month we focused on bolstering the inner workings of Murfie. We just rolled out a new "Disc Dematerializer" to improve the speed at which members' discs get posted.
Soon we'll be focusing on the parts of Murfie our members use the most. We want to make the site faster and easier to use as well as implement the features popularly requested by members.
In addition to our regularly scheduled programming (har har har) we have some experimental work going on in the Murfie labs. Mobile apps, cloud music locker interfaces, and other R&D projects are under way."

Holla Back for Giving Back
Kicking off a charitable campaign...
"We don't just love music. We also understand its impact and importance. That's why we're pumped to partner with VH1's Save the Music Foundation. What better way to give back than to help a non-profit working to fund public schools' music education programs. We can't divulge many details yet, but we'll tease ya with this: a Save the Music shop on Murfie.
We're hoping to get things kicked off pretty darn soon so stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, please email any comments or inquiries about how to be a part of this special magic to: email@example.com"
