Speaking of garage bands, anyone who likes to explore new talent should
check out this web site:

Bands can upload songs to the site, and the members (anyone can sign up)
review and rank the selections. The most popular band gets a $250,000
recording contract (I wish I could say for sure how often this happens, but
I can't). Some of the stuff here is mediocre or worse, but some is worth
listening to.
