Imagine a site which can categorize and index most music blogs in this part of the universe. Such a site will be the biggest archive of music in the world. This is what Munju is! Currently it is alpha stage (not even beta!) most of the bugs are still visible to users. It is designed to index 240.000 blogs. As it is in test (alpha) now, only 1000 blogs added to see how the server will react to traffic and computing in production mode. By using this site right now, you are helping us to measure stress on the server. Once everything is perfect, the server will be reset and restarted again with full functionality.

 Thanks for using Munju folks! Enjoy!

Looks interesting. I don't know if it will find an audience though - Google already does the exact thing, with 10k or more times the resources and bandwidth. Just search for an artist (name in quote marks) or album (name in quote marks), and at the end add If that fails, try the same with

As I sat staring at the interface wondering what to search for, I was thinking, "I look at music blogs in hope of discovering things I never knew existed." Not sure that the new service will be relevant to that, although some of my favorites including Frog Not Prog were found while looking for obscure albums that I did already know existed....

Time alone will tell.

I have to agree with anonymous - Google already allows one to search all blogs by clicking on "More" then "Blogs" before entering your search criteria. Where Munju scored in its previous incarnation was in filtering out the blogs which only offer reviews, or cd covers etc. In fact the most useful feature of Munju was the regularly updated Blogwatch which allowed us to discover new music or new blogs that we were previously unaware of - hopefully you will be able to include this facility in the new version, it's what drew me back to the old Munju on a daily basis. Thanks for all your efforts.

hi folks currently filtering abilities not yet implemented to munju.

but i am glad to anounce a big change, that we are working on:

now filtering mechanism pushed to post level.
what does that mean?

imagine prognotfrog.. here we send prog rock, jazz, fusion, sometimes folk etc. in previous version, once prognotfrog's 1 post indexed, it assumes the post is progressive rock. in other words whenever new posts added from was tagging them as progressive rock..

now it is at post level. that means, in the future you can filter posts for a genre, or playlist,music news, download etc

all on the way :)

currently without any filters you can see blogwatch at

about search funtionality on munju, i completely agree we dont need yet another search engine to compete with google. however it is there, if you wish to..

This new extension seems unbelievable!
On dreaming. Munju was done.
Pharaonic database can now all know about everything, and especially fully listen to a previously excavated album for the pleasure of our ears.
I feel like a spoiled child. It found me the finest musical confections of the Prog world. and then it served me them on a tray. And I did not use all the features of this new musical paradise...

Glory and admiration!

Hi again
For the last couple of days I have a problem with When I try to access the site I get the error message:
"Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later. Why did this happen?
IP address:
Time: 2012-07-11T15:18:57Z

If I click on "Why did this happen" I get:
"This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop.
This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible. Learn more
Sometimes you may see this page if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly. "
Have you any idea why this message appears?

Hi Terry! our munju uses exactly the same infrastructure as google uses.. to be honest i have no idea of this message, but i can give you a general tip.. whenever this happens with google; or your isp blocks a website etc.. put to the end of the url adress. for example for munju:

by this way it should work i think..hope this helps, i will also search in forms of google.
