Here's the top 10 artists on Jango Airplay for the week of Oct 4-10. This week sees a lot of turnover as Falconbrook is the only holdover from last week. Check them all out below.

#1: For This Cause
For This Cause is a recently-formed alternative/post-hardcore band from Australia. They spent much of 2009 and 2010 on tour, pausing just long enough to release their debut EP this past February.

#4: Falconbrook
Falconbrook are a set of enigmatic post-rockers whose compositions are sprawling, but never dull. They keep their identities private and let the music speak for itself.

Vistas
#5: Lynn Lister
Lynn Lister makes music in a small studio in Texas, overlooking trees and a stream. Mostly instrumentals from a bunch of old guitars and a couple of new synthesizers. And, of course, his beloved MacBook Pro. You can definitely tell by the laid back feel of his music.

#6: Legrand
Christopher Ross, aka Legrand, ushers originality back into the hip- hop community as well as his unique sense of diverse cultures. This amazing lyricist has opened for Black Moon, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes and has toured extensively overseas.

#7: Particle Wave
Particle Wave materialized in 2006 when its four members began jamming and playing small gigs across Southern California. Rooted in classic rock, they incorporate elements of noise pop and indie rock, delivering a strong, melody-driven experience.

Mind
#8: Shift (Australia)
Shift blends the old with the new, and takes it progressively on a different journey entirely. At times as heavy as bands like Strapping Young Lad, Death, and Nevermore, yet fused with the tranquility and melody of the likes of Alice In Chains and Katatonia.

The Bin
#9: Michael E Walker
Michael E Walker or Mike as he likes to be called, hunts, fishes, and play's music. He's going to be real busy the next couple of months promoting his song "California." This will be the first time that he'll be actively seeking a record deal.

California
#10: Prayer/Life
Andrea's voice has been called "unique" and "special". John has crazy piano skills--a musician's musician. Andrea's lyrics are deep and poetic and enticingly lead people back to the scriptures. The duo having almost nothing in common except for their musical calling.

Since Jango is relactunt to make this more transparent I suggest we take the matters in our own hands and put our stats here for everyone to see. On my most popular track this week I had 24 likes per 210 paid plays. This netted a rather poor 88 pop score. Is the bar really so high now? Wonder what was the hit ratio for the top 10... Please share your numbers here so everyone can see exactly where they stand and what their target should be. Thanks

On 9/21/2010, Jango asked Artists for their Jango Link, Latest PopScore and Targets. They got over 300 Artists to respond! It's a wealth of intelligence to gain some insight into how different Artists, Genres, and Targets align with PopScore.

I suggest you take a look at this Jango Blog URL - http://jangoairplay.blogspot.com/2010/09/want-to-be-featured-on-airplay-home.html

Enjoy, Greg Charles / A Nice Vibe

Thanks for the reply Greg. I'm afraid this is hardly relevant though. The real question here is not what pop score other people get, but what percentage of likes got them to that number. Just trying to get a sense of how these numbers scale.

A few weeks ago we got 28 likes and 17 fans on 100 paid plays for one song. The popscore ended up 93. Not bad, but considering we've had higher scores I was thinking this was going to be the best we've had.

Then again we've had winning scores that didn't seem to have a particularly high # of either, so it's apparently that part of the formula we don't see that makes the difference.

My guess is that as more bands join Jango, the bar DOES get higher. Which is only natural. We've been in the Top Ten 3 or 4 times, and it seems like it's taking a higher score than it used to. (Now needs a "99" as opposed to "96/97" in the past.)

Don't know all the factors for Pop Score, which probably include "Likes" and "Fans" percentages, comments, number of plays, etc. But Jango still seems like one of the best opportunities for us.

I don't really worry about the pop score...kind of irrelevant feature from my viewpoint. We use Jango to expand exposure of our new album to larger audience in hopes of redirecting the new fans to either iTunes or the band's website to sell more albums/tracks. So far, the plan seems to be working fine. No false expectations here...Jango has worked pretty much exactly as I anticipated.

I'm new to Jango - it all looks good, but what I wanted to ask was - has anybody received genuine feedback from people around the world via Jango mail, therefore verifying the new fans? Also, is anyone experiencing increased sales of their music since they have been on Jango? I ask this genuinely, I'm not trying to insinuate anything, I just wanted to know from people who have been using Jango for a while before I go and start purchasing more credits...

i have recieved a lot of feed back from the fans when i do mass emails via jango fan blast email and on my web site stats i see fans are hitting my record label web site from all over the world through my status i can see what city or states and countires are hitting my personal web page not the jango status these are people listing to my music on jango and then logging on to my fan page and i have seen more money come in for my music i dont know how i would be getting my music out to the masses all over the world if it was not for jango so anonymous to anonymous i would say it is worth the cost to buy more plays

We released our CD over 10 years ago and it would have been cool if Jango had been around. It's cool to see how people have responded and though I know it's not going to go blazing up the chart we now have fans around the world and they love the album. Pretty nice. Thanks Jango!

Does anyone know if organic plays have an effect on the pop score. Either way, top ten or bottom ten its nice to at least have a chance. I had a tough time getting listened to by even my friends sometimes. I was convinced my music sucked before I joined, not cause i'd hear bad things about it, but cause i'd hear absolutly nothing. Jango the best for me so far. Take music submit for example. I got 400 submits, 17 accepted me and 29 rejected me. Did that other 324 listen to my music and if not why pay for a service. Music Submit sucks, Jango Rules
