Australians can now access 16 million music tracks, discover new music with ease, and never listen to an ad, with the launch today of MOG from Telstra.
ARIA Award winner, Clare Bowditch, sees music subscription as an important part of the future landscape for Australian music lovers. "The way we listen to music has changed enormously over the course of my
life. From single CD's on the CD Walkman - remember how frustrating it was trying to actually walk with them? - to online music subscription services like MOG. I am always on the hunt not only for new artists but also for hard-to-come-by rarities. MOG lets me do both of those things really easily, right from my smart phone." Clare adds, "One feature of MOG that I am especially enjoying is MOG Radio. It allows me
to look up an old time artist like Lil Armstrong, whose music I've struggled to find elsewhere, and then, get suggestions about similar artists that other listeners have discovered, based on their own musical
tastes. So a Lil Armstrong fan may lead me to Lanie Lane, C.W. Stoneking or some other brilliant music-makers who you would not necessarily have heard if you were just listening to commercial radio.
It's a really simple, rather ingenious way to discover new music, and to give old songs a new life."
