I'm actually doing this.
This blog will focus primarily on my most beloved genres of music - rock. From atmospheric acoustic bands to screaming banshee devil worshippers - all of it will be covered here. But don't expect any household names! The best part, in my not-so humble opinion, is that I know what I'm talking about and have enough knowledge to warrant the creation of this website, so you'll be finding out about some extremely obscure and phenomenal bands!
The purpose of this blog, besides exposing/reviewing new releases and bands in general, will be to further build and support independent, awesome music and great people in a positive and open community. There will be questions answered, tours posted, relevant and interesting news, mp3s, live videos and my inane ramblings.
So the deal is this:
On the 1st of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track. During the month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have as little bias as possible.
Linked below is the first of the mixes, tracked #1-31 with no further identifiable information - except awesomeness.
Check back daily for random updates, while the reviews will begin to be posted as of May 1st, 2013. As stated, the reviews will be directly connected to the monthly MP3 mixes.
Included this month are:
- the best screamo song ever - about Michael Jordan
-folk/acoustic guitar/vocalists, one song male and one song female
-a 12 minute song of epic instrumental metal/space/rock proportions
-a piano song, for relaxing times
-the best rock/pop-punk band no one has ever heard of.
You will need winzip to unzip the file. If you don't know how to use winzip, just go to www.winzip.com and click on Download WinZip, and then on the next page click on Download WinZip Now. Open or save the file and run winzip so it installs on your computer. Now click the link below to download the MP3 mix, and when it finishes use WinZip to 'extract' the files to your computer. Any questions? Post.
If you would like anything reviewed/posted, please email Dave at (for now) firstname.lastname@example.org OR post a message.
