POP ETC and Listen Before You Buy Discuss Review Via Twitter

We recently reported on POP ETC (@popetcetera), the newly named band formerly known as The Morning Benders. Along with the name change, the band issued the POP ETC Mixtape for free download. The mixtape was reviewed by Listen Before You Buy (@ListenB4YouBuy) and in a candid exchange on Twitter the band and the website shed light on how reviews are crafted and how a band reacts to a “bad” review.

It’s not often this type of frank discussion from both the band and website takes place out in the open, showing once again one of the many benefits of Twitter. It’s clear from this exchange that at least some bands very much care about how their music is reviewed and that some music websites take the role of critic very seriously. Props to POP ETC for taking this dialog to the public and constantly engaging and responding to their followers on Twitter.
