Since August 2016 the Pretty Voices have been available on Jango to listen to. It’s already a subject that’s been touched on around here but what I’m going for now is to note something about the site that better reflects listening habits: Popularity.
There have been 17 total tracks made available from two albums; the pretty voices ep and Jangular. The latter album was released in May of 2016 while the former was released in December 2010. The band has really been pushing Jangular pretty consistently and my inclusion of their debut EP album wasn’t requested but I did feel like the rock fans wouldn’t mind hearing the whole enchilada and not just the most recent album.
I can’t say airplay has been consistent on my part. Two tracks have over 600 airings (Radishes and Control) while there’s one track that has only gotten 10 airings (Nancy Boy). Popularity does have a bit of influence over airings though; Radishes has 12 “fans” while the song that leads Pretty Voices on the network is El Camino with 14 fans (fans or the more common Facebook “Likes”).
I could keep sharing information here but let’s just go to the data and work from there. Note, this is listed by popularity order (most popular).
|Grease Fire||the pretty voices ep||443||10|
|Hush Yer Mouth||the pretty voices ep||220||3|
|First Rate||the pretty voices ep||110||2|
|Pin Prick||the pretty voices ep||100||2|
|Lost Weekend||the pretty voices ep||120||1|
|I Found the Essence Rare||Jangular||124||0|
|Nancy Boy||the pretty voices ep||10||0|
With the exception of Grease Fire, the pretty voices ep’s tracks haven’t had its content played much. Pin Prick has only gotten 100 plays (despite earning fans), so keep that in mind with the lack of plays for Nancy Boy.
All of this is more airplay than what happens with people surfing around YouTube. While I recently added the pretty voices ep tracks to YouTube, the tracks from Jsngular have been out there for a while with scant use. Does that hinder the songs? No, it just shows that people have different habits with listening than using YouTube.
Nancy Boy will get more airings, as will other tracks in time… but for the meantime, El Camino is ruler (online) of the band.
