Hamfatter, The Streets rising stars online

This month’s lists of the top 20 band/artist searches sending traffic to social networking sites and music blogs for the four weeks ending August 2.

The list appeared this afternoon on the blog of Hitwise Intelligence analyst, Robin Goad. The lead seems to go to Basshunter and Biffy Clyro, who have been leading traffic for months.


We’re interested to see our mate’s band, Hamfatter, (the UK act who got funding from the Dragon’s Den series) have leapt into the chart at number 20. A stat. which Goad notes as “evidence of the benefit of cross media promotion”.

Looking at the top searches sending traffic to music blogs, there are three artists that appear on both lists: Noah and the Whale, Jonas Brothers and Dizzee Rascal / Calvin Harris.

And, saving the best until last, another new entry in the top ten is The Streets, “who are returning to the limelight after a couple of years with new album, Everything Is Borrowed, and a free download.”

We’d love to publish the list here, but we didn’t assemble it, so why not hop across to Goad’s blog and take a look? You’ll find it just here...Be Seeing You!
