I just love to listen to anything that makes noise, whether it’s John Coltrane’s sax, Radiohead’s method to the madness, Bjork’s idiosyncrasies, John Cage’s silent spaces or the rattling of a bad muffler. Hopefully, you’ll read this blog to find new music. Music has never been better or more unique than it is now. Take time out and truly listen to some of what is being created today. I don’t have any special qualifications. I’m just a dude who digs music. I listen to a lot of it. A lot. Occasionally, I’ll post some non-music related things. But musically speaking — I don’t know a thing. I own a guitar and a few harmonicas — and play none of them well enough to even suggest I can carry a tune.

Feel free to send music. Please include a bio, any latest news about your band and at least one mp3 that can be posted on the website if you can. To send a full album for review, please encode it as either a .zip file of mp3s or individual mp3 files or provide a link to where it can be downloaded. I can’t promise to respond personally to every e-mail because there are just so many now. But realize that I understand all the hard work that goes into making music — so believe me when I say everything sent will be read, or listened to in full. I will adhere to any rules you have for posting songs. Take care. And always carry headphones.
