I know a lot of you have been anxiously awaiting the follow-up to the “Promote Yourself post.” I want to begin by saying how impressed I was by the incredible amount of quality and variety of the stuff submitted. Truly incredible. Since almost all of the submissions were independent or unsigned, it further solidifies my belief that you guys are capable of making amazing music that sounds just as good as anything put out on a major label.
Many different genres and countries (including Australia, Chile, France, Russia, Canada, Romania, Estonia, Poland, Germany, and others) were represented. I asked the non-music-makers out there to please hold off on making comments (which some of you did, ha)…now, I’m opening it up to everyone to speak their mind. My team helped me put all of your posts up on the following site, where EVERYONE CAN NOW VOTE ON THEIR FAVORITES. There’s no prize except knowing how you’re doing, so there is no point cheating the votes. Just place a vote for the bands you like best, and let them know they’re doing something right. Go here:
ALSO, If you didn’t post about your music the first time, but you still want to, I’ll continue to look, so post at the link above You have to sign in if you want to vote or post, but I think it’s worth it.
In the next few weeks, I’ll be highlighting some of the bands I liked. I’m not picking these based on votes or recommendations. These were simply some things that caught my ear. Let’s begin.
SELA – Great hip hop, and variety from track to track…check out “Pump Yo Fist” and “Out There.”
Chris Connor – beautiful soundscapes and guitar textures. I’d love to hear some songs with vocals, but at the very least, this music sounds great so far.
Panik Music – Killer rap-rock from Germany: Check out “Was Wuerdest Du Tun.” I don’t know what they’re saying, but the overall vibe is pretty solid.
