Band Uses Mac Widgets to Distribute Album
Posted on 16-Aug-2005 09:08 | Tags Filed under: News



Los Angeles based band Sexohol released the world's first Widget album. Their debut album, "Enjoy!" is available as a free Dashboard Widget for Apple computers running Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.

The free "Enjoy!" Widget Album lets music fans listen to any of the 12 songs from “Enjoy!” whenever connected to the Net, while providing lyrics and photographs from the CD. The full version, "Full Enjoy!ment", lets fans listen to the album without an internet connection and costs US$9.99.

Sexohol's co-lead singer and bassist, Golden Delicious, sees Widget Albums as the wave of the future. "Our Enjoy! album was added to the iTunes Music Store just over a week ago, but online buyers say they miss the full CD experience. Our attempts to squeeze a physical CD through an ethernet cable failed, so we did this instead.”

The technology behind the Enjoy! Widget Album is simple. If the user doesn't own any of the songs, the widget streams them from the Net. But if the user has bought the songs or album from the iTunes Music Store, or copied them from the Enjoy! iPod shuffle or CD, then the widget will find and play the local copies.
