Looks cool, I like the theme thing (I liked that aspect of Nur Ein.) Might do it as a thing on the side, or try it anyway.

I only heard about it because of Matt Payne doing it. Sounds interesting though. Once a week seems almost doable, but, hard to keep up for a whole year.

I just had a quick listen - randomly clicking on 3 "songs" from last week. They all just sounded like random instrumental noodling

There's something like 300 new songs per week there! (Although, as Caravan Ray pointed out, very few seem to be vocal.) It does look interesting, and, like SongFight, it looks like there's no commitment, so one can drop in and out as one pleases.

I think that's why it has "beats" in the site name instead of "song."
