Just a quick update.
About six months ago, the traffic to this blog was about one tenth what it is now. That’s pretty rapid growth, at least in my eyes. And I never expected it. While this is not a commercial enterprise for me in any way, it still is nice to reach a larger audience than I expected. With this larger audience, I believe comes a responsibility and an opportunity. Not just for me and my little ideas and opinions. But for YOU.. if you make music and you want it to be heard. So, with this month, I hope to increase the frequency of posts here, from opinion pieces to mp3 previews of new releases. So if you have that great new track you want people to hear, send it to me. I’m looking for all genres, genuinely! But one area of personal interest is home recorded stuff. Basement music. But with a focus on the new. I don’t want the stuff laying around that you threw together on a 4 track back in 98. I’m looking for music that is dying out there trying to find an audience. The weird, the outsiders, the recluses, the obscure. I need your stuff. I’ll be out there looking, but I need your help as well. If you know someone who fits this description, send me a link. Or encourage them to put their stuff online. I’ll help if it’s needed. That’s not to say I won’t be looking for label stuff as well, I will. But I also want that stuff that hasn’t been found… yet. So if you know of anything you know I have not found already, send me links, tracks, contact info, bios, anything. Send it all to : email@example.com
Thanks to all who helped this month with the round-up post and the playlist. The feedback and suggestions have been great. And thanks to all the new readers who showed up this month as well. I hope I can live up to the new attention and deliver. The playlist should be ready by the 1st or 2nd. The roundup post a few days later rather than the middle of the month.
