NO SINGLES (EPs OK).
Note to Artists, Labels and PR reps: Your CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, vinyl LPs, EPs and 45s, and even cassettes for potential review are welcomed and encouraged. I’m already on the mailing lists for many of the major PR reps (you know who you are). If I’m not on your list, please feel free to add me. My tastes run decidedly toward the rock, soul, blues and jazz end of the musical spectrum, so if you (or your clients) are a “boy band,” run-of-the-mill hip-hop artist, EDM/DJ artist, act called “so-and-so feat. so-and-so” or bro-country performer, save your stamp, as it were.
I’m keenly interested in reissues (rock, jazz, soul, blues, r&b, etc.) and previously-unreleased archival material of cultural/historical interest; if you have any of that sort of thing that you’re promoting, PLEASE get in touch. Extensive and enthusiastic coverage is likely.
And please note that I require music media I can hold in my hand. CDs and vinyl only (well, cassettes in a pinch). I will NOT consider for review anything provided to me as a stream or download. PLEASE READ THAT SENTENCE AGAIN before contacting me. No exceptions.
If your pitch interests me — and tells me enough about what you do — I WILL, however, listen to streams for evaluation purposes. If those pique my interest, I’ll contact you and request physical media for potential (but not guaranteed) coverage. It remains your choice to send or not.
And as wonderful as your single might be, while I’m happy to listen to it, I DO NOT REVIEW SINGLES.
AND…I say this with all due respect. If your note requires me to guess or otherwise divine what you’re about musically, I will delete it instantly.
