FEATURE: The MySpace Generation: Where Are They Now?

In February, the social media giant that is Facebook celebrated their 12 year anniversary. Back before the days when Facebook ruled the roost (yeah, we’re going back a bit now), MySpace was the social media daddy.

However, one of the things that kept MySpace such a interesting prospect from its inception to its dwindling demise from about 2008 onwards was what it did for music.

FEATURE: 50 albums that turn 10 in 2016!

At the moment, it’s looking like 2016 is going to be a great year in terms of new albums, with a handful of huge bangers already out there and many more undoubted hits confirmed to be hitting out ears in the next few months. It’s also important to look back every so often, and it just turns out that a decade ago in 2006 was a great year for albums too.

SINGLE: Cute Is What We Aim For – The Curse Of Curves

Release Date: April 30th, 2007
Label: Fueled By Ramen / Decaydance
Website: www.cuteiswhatweaimfor.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/cuteiswhatweaimfor
