Music Tech/Art Blogs

Afternoon all,

I've done a binaural remix of a track by a local (Brighton) alt-folk(ish) artist and am wondering about maybe getting it some coverage in blogs that kind of straddle the line between music technology and creativity - if such things exist. Can any of you lovely folk suggest any such blogs?

Cheers
Phil

Depending on the ratio of 'alt' to 'folk' this might be worth a look: https://americana-uk.com/

Thanks for that. Interesting blog but I suspect the track will be too 'alt' and not enough 'americana" for them.

Ramirez might be a good person to ask. I notice he's been back online today so maybe worth a quick PM?

Actually, shufflebeat may be worth a chat too.

Hi Phil!

A trio of websites that might hone in towards your desires:

A Closer Listen - a home for instrumental and experimental music: https://acloserlisten.com/

Fluid Radio - Experimental Frequencies: http://www.fluid-radio.co.uk/

Drifting, Almost Falling (Investigations of minimal ambient, drone and modern classical sounds): https://driftingalmostfalling.wordpress.com/

Hope this helps!


Martin

Thanks Martin.

All interesting sites. I used to listen to Fluid Radio a lot. Don't know why I stopped and it's good to be reminded of it.

Cheers
Phil

Honestly... I'd take a look at the submithub blogs, but don't pay for the credits.

You can find the blogs with the genre specific filters and then go to the blog and manually find the email to write a pitch to.

Make an excel document of all the contacts you have, what genre they are, what their contact is and contact them every time you have an upcoming release. I made a template for this on google docs which I'll link here. You can make a copy of it yourself.

Also, if you're struggling to get email responses or write the pitch, there's a great article that runs you through everything you need to do when DIY music marketing.

Ooh, the responsibility.

To be honest I'm not a great curator of links

...luckily Mike Harding is:
