This has been an especially fruitful summer for music games, as former Cut Copy bassist (and developer of mega-hit Olympics web app QWOP) Bennett Foddy has added to the short list of Pitchfork’s interactive music web apps and Beck penned three songs for the Sound Shapes Playstation game. We’ve seen plenty of great music apps too, as you’ll see below — including an immersive Android synthesizer, an iPad band app for (theoretically) four people, and a new digital DJ world.
First, some reviews.
[Ed. note: Evolver.fm writer Andrew Garsetti actually put this edition of This Week In Music Apps together a couple of weeks ago, but we're guessing most of this stuff will still be new to you. It will soon resume its regular schedule; stay tuned.]
