A FUTURE IN NOISE BLOG DIRECTORY FOR MUSIC SUBMISSIONS 300+ SITES LISTED VERSION 4.0 | UPDATED 11/2009 WHAT IS THIS? This is a directory of hand(mouse?)-picked music blogs and magazine-style websites that accept music submissions for review, for the use of independent musicians and labels to help them reach more ears, as well as anyone looking for more music blogs to check out. This is a project connected to the music blog A Future in Noise. Please e-mail with any corrections or additions to details. I’d love to hear suggestions of sites to add to the list, the only requirements are that 1) the blogs must primarily have music-based content, 2) have been updated at least in the past 3 months, 3) specifically state somewhere on the site that they are interested in submissions (Contact box/e-mail, SoundCloud, etc.). Thanks! - marilynroxie@gmail.com TIPS FOR MUSICIANS / LABELS Be sure to browse through articles on the site you are considering sending your music to beforehand, so you can see if your style is a potentially good match to their taste. Send download links for your mp3s and/or ZIPs within your message, as opposed to attachments, unless otherwise specified. Convenient, pop-up free websites for storing your music files and making them available to others are http://www.box.net/ and http://boxstr.com/


Including a press kit helps, as well as links to your official website, MySpace Music page, Facebook, iLike, Twitter, etc. DON’T SPAM- always be professional and courteous! In my personal experience, I have found that the music I post about from submissions tends to be from those who are the nicest (and least generic!) when they have contacted me. Coincidence? I don't think so! This article is also a good reference for how to effectively pitch your material: The Golden Rules of PR: 12 Music Bloggers Set it Straight | bigMETHOD TIPS FOR MUSIC BLOGGERS / WEBSITE OWNERS Include your e-mail and a brief invitation for musicians/labels to send their music to you for review consideration and/or embed a SoundCloud Dropbox on your page and place it in a noticeable location. HOW TO USE Music blogs listed are currently divided into two categories: General – Rock/Pop – Indie - Other and Electronica – House – DJs – Remixes.
