Adobe & Teardrops
This “New York-based alt-country and Americana blog” is really a gem. In addition to regular music updates on new tracks and albums, Adobe & Teardrops also offers links to free and cheap music downloads for all you alt-country fans out there. Be warned before sending in your music, this blog doesn’t accept “racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, or synths.”
The Burning Ear
Brandon Bogajewicz, the L.A. blogger behind The Burning Ear, promises to bring you the best of the best in new music so you don’t have to hassle with any of the other blogs out there (like us). Not only does The Burning Ear offer an eclectic mix of spicy new tunes daily, but their affiliate program for record lovers called Vinyl Moon is a monthly membership I would certainly love to receive for my birthday this year (hint to family and friends).
Fluid Radio is both a publication and a playlist that is an amalgamation of the interests of its creators, audience, and participating creatives. At least, that’s what we can figure out. This UK radio is experimental not only in its content, but in its very structure. If you think your music is pushing boundaries and reshaping the aural landscape, you should check out Fluid Radio.
This L.A.-based music blog functions more like a ongoing curated playlist, bringing new singles and insights on those tracks regularly to readers. The songs are a mix of independent and mainstream artists, but Abduction Radiation does hold a special place in their hearts for underground bands. Maybe your band could score some AR love, but read the guidelines first (always).
