New Website! 7.30.10

Posted by Sound Semantics in interwebs.

I’ve been geeking out all week working on our website, and I’m pleased to announce that the moment has come and we just launched the new design. You can check out all the new features at SoundSemantics.com, and here’s a list of the highlights…

  • Home page with news section, which means regular updates and show reminders for people who forget stuff (like me) or like exciting stuff (like me!)
  • Clean navigation and a music player that stays open all the time while you explore our fancy new features, so you won’t have to listen to the first 10 seconds of every song all the time
  • Press & testimonials section… so there’s someplace for us to put your kind words when you send them to us!
  • A fancy contact form that is way more exciting in theory than in practice. Seriously, I know it looks simple and boring, but for lowly web-knowledge-bottom-dwellers like me, it’s a big deal.

Ok, I realize this might not be super exciting for everybody. So, in case this isn’t the greatest thing that’s happened to you all week, fear not. You’re about to be rewarded for your patience.

Here is a picture of Allie with a beard, and Eran in a dress. Talk amongst yourselves. (Thanks for the photo, Gina E!)

So, which one is the bearded lady?

In other news, we’ve been working on some new material (including that “Cheer Up” song from our tour blogs, if you remember it). We’re trying to focus our sound a bit, and part of that is about listening to our listeners.. and understanding what people like. I guess half the process here is working on our strengths and expressing ourselves, and the other half is learning what actually communicates–what is well received by our listeners–so we can try to create a real connection with people. Nah’mean?

Next gig is this Sunday, August 1st. We’re playing on the third (and last) day of PDX Unplugged Summerfest 2010, an acoustic music festival based in the Hawthorne Theater and Lounge. Then we’re taking the rest of August “off” to write and figure out some of that listening/expressing/communicating/enjoying stuff. Oh, and also making a new music video. With cartoon versions of us. (Don’t worry, there won’t be cross dressing involved. I don’t think, anyway.)

That’s all for now! Happy August everybody,

Hello Sound Semantics Travelling Duo,

This is your New York mother….And I guess my eyes are not deceiving me that the most recent photo is of Allie with facial hair – the dress on Eran had to be pointed out to me – Thanks!!! I love your blogs of the tour and feel like I shared many moments with you. I am planning on a Westward Ho! trip – (no pun intended or included) in the next semi-annual time frame and expect to enjoy a live showcase of your wonderful songs when I come – I will plan accordingly.

Congratulations on delivering so many moments of joy – love -irony – and truth on you current CD – at the drop of a hat
