Ourtunez would like to introduce you germs to Kaleido. These punk warriors have been making madness around the Motor City for quite sometime now and are in no terms slowing down anytime soon. Opening up for Kid Rock in Las Vegas and playing this years inaugural Oakaloosa festival at Fort Wayne, all within the last year, is just the beginning for these animals. Head over to and tune into both the indie rock and indie pop stations to get a whiff of the dankness that seeps from their pores. Cheers!

Hold On to Your Butts, Ourtunez v1.5 Is Live!

Behold, the majesty!

On the front page, users will notice the dynamic wheel of artists gives you a glimpse at some groups exclusive to Ourtunez. We have also added a way for you to manage the songs you have disliked. If you want to give an artist another chance, you now have the capability to do so. One more important feature for v1.5 is that everyone of our featured artists will have the word INDIE next to their name, so you’ll instantly recognize when artists are available for “on demand” listening, and adding to playlists. Enjoy the new digs, and keep on keeping on.
