The One Takes Volume 1 is OUT

Nov 19, 2014 by

Tweet That’s right, our first EP full of exclusive recordings from a few of our favorite artists is now available. You can buy it and help support our growth into Maven.FM, the independent music internet radio station we’ve been dreaming and scheming about for the last two years. When you buy this album or one of the singles, you’re helping us directly fund Maven.FM. And you’re getting some excellent tunes which you can wow your friends with, as they won’t have them yet. You’re such a tastemaker, aren’t you? A big thanks to Laura Marie, Van Susans, Roaming Herds of Buffalo and Pepper and Shepherd for believing in our new radio station so much they donated these recordings exclusively for us to use. They’re pretty great. We also have to thank Beatnik Geek Records...

11 Reasons Your Music Submission Goes in the Trash...

Oct 6, 2014 by

Tweet Music submissions to radio, blogs and podcasts are something we’ve been dealing with for nearly seven years now. Having been in all three situations and now with our co-producer Claire doing most of the listening and selection of the submissions, we’ve got it down to a near science. I thought it would be good for us to share the red flags with you so that you might avoid having your prized music get thrown in the trash before someone’s even listened to it. Spoiler alert: we advocate that you personally research every place you’re sending your music, find the right person, send it to them and personalize the email specifically for them. Then, follow up in a week or so if you haven’t heard back. When you do get in touch, foster these...

50K Music: Spreading the Spirit of Indie Music...

Mar 29, 2013 by

Tweet Spirit. Music. Indie. Sure, we share the same keywords but we’ve only just found each other. The founder/editor Mario Putzar started 50K Music with a popular European music fan-funding website in a print form, and then chopped and changed when they stopped printing it. Since then (about four years ago) he’s been focusing on fan-funded artists, independent music and generally the same sort of great stuff we like to feature. It’s no accident that we found each other. They’ve been saying lots of nice things about us on 50kmusic.com and have recently featured our interview with Francesca of Amycanbe very prominently on their site. I’m looking forward to working more with Mario and his team in the coming weeks and months, especially as we’re looking to expand our offering on our website as well. Go check...
