Launched late in 2008, Fairtilizer offers an alternative means for artists, labels and media to publish and promote music from one single place, offering public and private URLs for your tracks, playlists, widgets, statistics and more.

Based in Switzerland, Paris and New York, Fairtilizer describes itself as a 'Do It Yourself Music Club' and combines the licensing, publishing and selling opportunities of sites like Bandcamp with the easy customisation of access offered by the likes of Soundcloud.

Music discovery and rating options are available for music fans and consumers, and in its relatively short existence, Fairtilizer has managed to drum up a substantial following.

Their embeddable music widget can be used by bands and fans alike across all blogging platforms and social networking sites.

For example, here's a player created by Sheffield's Bromheads:

I think the site offers the best combination of attractiveness and functionality I've seen for a while, which is why Fairtilizer.com is my Website of the Week.


Tom Robinson presents BBC Introducing - Fresh on the Net on BBC 6 Music on Sunday and Monday nights.
