Music Submit

The more astute reader might have noticed that I have retired New Music Ideas – the spinoff site from New Music Strategies. Its purpose was to act as a place to review and alert the readership to sites and services that may (or may not) be helpful.

It occurred to me recently that as there is such overlap between that site and this one, it didn’t make any sense to keep them separate – so from now on, this is where those reviews reside. But here’s the twist. I don’t do the reviews – you do.

I link to the site, post a short sentence or two about what it purports to be – and you let me (and everyone else here) know if it’s any good, if you’ve had any experience with them and if there are other, better services around. I’ve imported all the other reviews I did from the old site to here – but here’s the first at its new home.

Music Submit takes your music and sends it to genre-specific radio stations, online music magazines, online music directories, blogs, podcasts, indie record labels, and other electronic music media. It starts at $35 for 100 submissions, and tops out at 1000 submissions for $210.

Essentially, you’re outsourcing something that takes time, research and effort. But is it worth the money?
