Listened to a lot on Spotify especially whilst still recovering from glandular fever. They get the New Release Radar playlist spot on, lots of interesting music I’d otherwise not likely hear. To be fair some is pants though! The Daily Music mixes are good as you can remove artists they have suggested (bye bye Lita Ford and L7 in my case).
I know streaming doesn’t earn most artists much but if like me you discover a great new tune or artists, let your friends know, publicise the band, go see the, live and buy their music. That’s how you can work to keep musicians going and help them create more good music. Of course it’s not as easy as that but with PledgeMusic, fans using social media, etc. bands can at leats make a decent return for their hard work and efforts.
The playlist below features a lot of new bands Ive discovered this year including Christopher Shayne, Empire Circus, Left With Pictures, Inglorious, Tax The Heat and many more. The music is out the go get it and enjoy!
