Before you send me anything, please first do a little research on the kinds of music I post on Indie Music Filter and decide whether your music is in that ballpark. Does your music sound like a band I’ve posted on IMF? Does it fit in the genres I generally post in? Then:
Getting Your Music To Me (Bands):
Try an e-mail with a soundcloud or bandcamp link, a little bio on you, links to videos, and links to stream your best songs.
Getting Your Music To Me (Labels, Publicists, Management Companies, etc):
Send me an e-mail to briefly pitch me your band/artist. If its a good fit for my site, I’ll get in touch and we can go from there. Please don’t blindly subscribe me to your e-mail newsletter.
Don’t attach mp3s in your e-mail.
Follow up with more than once. I still get a ton of e-mail, all of which it I check, but don’t have time to write a response for. If you haven’t heard from me or see a review of your music, your music is not a good fit for the site.
-send me awesome music
-send me new content
-show me that you’re doing something different, yet something that would still fit with what I post on Indie Music Filter.
-If I post about your track, consider returning the favour with a tweet or share on Facebook.
Also, as the tagline on the front page indicates, this blog is about new music discovery. I typically don’t post tour announcements, gossip or music outside of the genres you’ll hear on the blog.
