Why Another Blog?
Do you love music as much as we do? I thought so!
The internet recently celebrated its 20th birthday. When it comes to music online, it seems to change every few years. First there was Napster, then iTunes, later there was BitTorrent, and now we have Soundcloud and Spotify. We think it’s time for a another change! Radio sucks, which is why most of us have replaced it or wish we could. The web has forever changed how music is both created and distributed. There are already hundreds, probably even thousands of music websites that already exist. Why create yet another one?
We have found that most music blogs are either too professional and geared towards industry insiders, while others are too casual and aren’t serious enough. We hope to be the modern equivalent and evolution of the original fan zines. We want a site to call our own and isn’t owned by a corporate conglomerate. A place to follow our favorite artists and an easy way to discover new ones. We want easy access to the latest news, and most of all we want music of all genres and styles that don’t suck. Imagine one place to follow everything from A-Trak to Zorch, from Banks to Yellow Ostrich, Childish Gambino to Xray Eyeballs, and everything in between. We dream of being able to keep up with both local music and international coverage. And what if there was also one website that listed every conceivable contest?
In the summer of 2013, the dream turned into reality! A year later, we have passed over 125,000 all time views and are nearly reaching 15,000 views a month. We invite you to be a part and join us. We are a music blog in Dallas with members all around North America. We are always looking for writers and editors to join the team. We are a team made up of both professional journalists and fans. Interested? Contact us today. We always need those to help with social media, putting together playlists, organizing, posting news and press releases, publishing contests, and lots more!
