This website is for discovering new music. If you find a band you really enjoy, go to their show, buy a shirt, or do something to show your support. Bands don't make much money from album sales anyways. However, if you just download their music and that's it, then the band doesn't make anything at all and they probably won't make anymore music for you to listen to. The music on this blog is for promotional uses only.
This has been on my mind for the past few months, and I feel like it’s time to say/do it. When I first started the label, I was wondering what would happen to this music blog. I didn’t want to end it, but things have certainly slowed down from here. Before going any further, I am not planning on ending the blog.
Bad news for you dinguses (dingi?) in Philly! We are invading to do some promoting, have a good time, be tourists and catch Restorations, Everyone Everywhere, Glocca Morra, Signals Midwest and Jet Set Sail.
We hope to leave tonight and get into town around noon tomorrow so we can putz around before the show. We wanna know: what record stores are the best? What bars are the best? And whose floor we can crash on?
We’re bringing the good weather from Michigan! It’s gonna be sunny and 55! Hope see some of yas.
Alright, finally getting around to this. First I had this split into Indie and Emo/Punk, but I still found that a ton of the bands could easily fall two or all three categories, so I just combined it to make a monstrosity. This is gonna take me a little bit, so here goes. The first 25 aren’t gonna have explanations, or else this would take days and I probably wouldn’t finish it. But you can click the pictures to go to where you can read the original posts on them.
Make sure to tune in today to the SIGD radio show at WUMD from 7-8 PM EST. We will be discussing very exciting news relating to the future of this website and bands associated with it. I don’t want to formally come out and announce it on here yet until a few more talks are done. (No, it isn’t about the zine, something much bigger than that).
As you can see we covered a lot of music this week so there will be plenty of new tunes to preview if you haven’t already downloaded them along with a recap of Sunday of Fest (the best day). You will hear from the likes of Restorations, Down I Go, We Were Skeletons, Weatherbox, Peace Be Still, Dikembe, Pariso, Dope Body, Ngod and moooooooooooooooooore.
As far as a contest goes, I am going to go out on a limb and say there isn’t going to be one this week. Who knows though, we may change our mind and think of a release we wanna do a contest for and make you do something regretful for it. If you are a band and want your record to be involved in a contest, contact me through the e-mail and we’ll set something up. I think I’m going to get a P.O. Box soon, among many other uplifts to this venture.
