Curious Minds Media has just launched the new site of the experimental rock band Mercury Rev. This site combines strong design with usability to create an exciting new web presence for the band. The design was based off of the new album artwork for the band’s next release, and captures the mysterious, otherworldly feel of the album. For the Recent News page, we used an RSS feed which was generated from Mercury Rev’s WordPress blog to populate this page with the latest content. Another addition to their site is a customized mp3 player which was designed and created by Curious Minds Media to look like a vintage radio. This mp3 player was created in Flash and uses XML to populate the player with the songs. Check it out at Mercury Rev’s new site: www.mercuryrev.com.
