Indie Music Discovery Site Fuzz.com To Shutter
Posted: January 22, 2009
SAN FRANCISCO (Hypebot) Independent music promotion and discovery site Fuzz.com is shutting down in mid-February due to "increasing operating costs and flat revenues". Sister site Blip.fm will remain open. A letter sent to users reads in part:

Dear Fuzz User:
Sadly, we are contacting you to announce that Fuzz.com is shutting down on February 13, 2009. Between now and then you may want to take the opportunity to post your forwarding information to fellow Fuzz users. It was with a heavy heart that we finally made the decision to turn off the lights, but because of increasing operating costs and flat revenues it simply no longer makes sense for us to keep Fuzz.com running. We offer our heartfelt thanks for being a part of it, and we'd like to give a special added thanks our avid, core users -- true music fans who made Fuzz their home-base, and created a real sense of community.

Please note that once the site is shut down on February 13, 2009, the band and user accounts, and all other content on Fuzz.com, will no longer be accessible. For artists who have used the site to sell music, we plan to make a final payout within 60 days of the shut down.
