    Thank you so much for sharing these! I am a huge advocate of sharing new music with others and commend you for doing so.

    You might appreciate some of the indie bands that I post about on my music blog http://www.SongoftheDay.co/ Check it out too. I created it to help others discover new music that doesn’t get played often on the radio.
    The fact that people feel the need to create these types of posts and resources is evidence of the fact that the architecture of the US music industry is seriously flawed and is doing a dis-service to the American people by overexposing corporate wonderbread bands and under exposing new and cutting edge bands that are breaking into new territory of sound and art. Obviously we can’t rely on the old standard ways of sharing music and must instead create our own systems that help to promote the music that we enjoy, and not the generic music that will happen to appeal to the widest possible audience.
    Keep fighting the good fight.
