You can still finish up voting for Group 16 of Round 1, but for those of you ready to move on…
Welcome to Round 2, where the action gets really heavy and the voting gets even tougher. Rules are a little different now. First thing you’ll notice is that there will be matches every day from now until the Superbowl, and then on the Superbowl, there’ll actually be two matches, a morning one and an evening one. Next thing is that instead of having 5 days (120 hours) to vote, now you’ll only have 2 days (48 hours), so that I can squeeze it all in by the time of the Superbowl.
There are four groups in Round 2, each made up of the winners in Round 1, with order randomly selected. Each group has 4 artists competing in 6 head-to-head matches, just like in Round 1. Vote for the winner of each head-to-head match, just like you did in Round 1.
If that all makes sense, let’s see who we’re voting on today:
Over the Rhine – Don’t Wait for Tom (Download – Streaming)
Waterdeep – Everyone’s Beautiful (Download – Streaming)
Half-Handed Cloud – I Got a Letter (Download – Streaming)
Jeremy Casella – Distress Signal (Download – Streaming)
Download the MP3s if you need ’em, but judge the artists and not just the song I put up.
Here are the six matches to vote on:
1) Over the Rhine vs. Waterdeep
2) Over the Rhine vs. Half-Handed Cloud
3) Over the Rhine vs. Jeremy Casella
4) Waterdeep vs. Half-Handed Cloud
5) Waterdeep vs. Jeremy Casella
6) Half-Handed Cloud vs. Jeremy Casella
Let the voting begin! All votes must be received in the comments by 8:00 am CST on Wednesday, January 30, 2008.
Note: All MP3s will be removed after one week
