Jamendo Goes Platinum!

Congratulations to the Jamendo team for reaching P2P platinum with their 1,000,000th BitTorrent download today!

The Owl team appreciates your commitment to the worldwide music community and we share your enthusiasm for using technology and creativity to help expose the music-loving world to thousands of emerging artists from all over the globe—like Maya de Luna and La Petite Mort whom I just discovered (and downloaded legally!) this afternoon using The Spiral.

We value your partnership and look forward to working closely with all of you as you push toward P2P plutonium—1 BILLION downloads!

—Dave and the rest of the Owl development team

More Jamendo!

More music today! We've just added about 6,000 new Jamendo tracks, bringing the Owl music search inventory to about 80,000 tracks in total.

Of the new tracks, one of my favorites is Giac & Juan's Sur les ailes d'un ange from their album Doux Réveil. This is a quiet, instrumental piece; something you might hear on Echoes.
