About / Reviewers / Submissions

This blog is not for tips on how to make stuff better. Fuck that. We will only review stuff we think is good enough to be enjoyed. We are looking for independent music with good taste and a good amount of effort behind it.

Anyhow, this will mostly be sort of an archive of the good music we have found on the web. Enjoy.

Submissions

Do you want to recommend something? You can post it in the comment section or send it to the reviewer you’d like to see reviewing it.

  1. Hey guys,

    I play bass in Studying, and just saw Red N Tooth N Claw’s review of our demo. Thank you so much for the kind words!

    I have procrastinated indefinitely on spreading any word about it, but I also play guitar in another band here in Northern Virginia called Solomon Solomon, and over a year ago we recorded a 3 song Demo with Mike York, one of the guitarists of Pianos Become The Teeth. I thought it might be something that would be up your guys alley, and they are recordings that have mostly been buried to our small group of friends here anyway. The general sphere of influence is of the Funeral Diner, City of Caterpillar, Envy mold, but that’s setting expectations way too high.
    There are lyrics on facebook as well as actual song titles, if you’d like to have them, feel free to e-mail me and I will send them your way.

  2. Hello,

    Just wondering if a little album I have just finished might be able to get the inb4track once over.

    snailhead.bandcamp.com

    It’s called ‘The Image’ and is about a 1970s sadomasochistic film of the same name.

  3. Hey so uh, my band just put out its first e.p. or at least what may be the begginings of our first e.p. and it would be really cool to have a review.
    By the way, I totally stole the idea from out awesome friends in studying.
    Either way, the bands name is Roma. Post-hardcore. All that stuff.
    romava.bandcamp.com
    Please and thanks.

  4. Hey, guys. There’s another “Best of /mu/” compilation going on, this time in its second volume. It was amazing what this site was able to do, what with reviewing almost every submitted track and review the resulting album as a whole.

    It’d be awesome and much appreciated if inb4track repeated what it did last year.

    GTB Records:
    We’re an internet label of independent musicians and a couple of comedians.

    Our roster includes such artists as Tau Tau (the synthpop project of Juilliard classical pianist Conrad Tao), ambient artists and bands such as Echo Vessel, Sonic Primitive, and Replicant, experimental electronic artists REC and The Trap’s Jaw, electro-pop artist Spinning Voices, and many more.

    Hope you find the time to look into what we have to offer.

  6. Hey, Carpeaux actually reviewed an album I recorded by myself way back in the day, he used the fifth paragraph to digress into an anti-p4k rant:
    https://inb4track.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/james-lewis-speed-belated-fathers-day/

    Anyway, I’m in a band now named Tires. We just compiled a 15 minute EP called: “Serious Sneer”. It’s Lo-fi Jangle Pop, with a Slacker vibe to the whole thing. We’re trying to get some reviews and/or mild press online right now to trick venues into letting us play live. This was the only blog whoever gave my solo material a chance, so I thought I’d send this by you guys.

    Thanks very much in advance for at least giving it a listen (how could you not? the tracks are GBV length).

    PS. Only have 3 minutes? Give the first and last tracks a listen.

  7. Hello!

    Recently, Silent Media released “Micromega” by Pacific 231. Micromega is a 12″ splatter vinyl and USB flash drive containing over 34 minutes of audio and matching 5.1 surround sound videos! Micromega is experimental in nature. It begins with a single guitar but, as you will hear, does not end with anything like what one might call a “guitar sound.” Check out the press release attached for more conceptual content.

    You can check out samples of the audio and video here: http://www.silentmediaprojects.com/made_micromega.html

    You can find out more about Pacific 231’s long music career here: http://www.pacific231.com/

    and more about Silent Media here: http://www.silentmediaprojects.com/silent_media_is.html

    Let me know if you would like me to send out a copy for further review. They are beautiful artefacts!

    Thanks for doing what you do!

    Kind Regards,

    Ben Link Collins

  8. First, I want to say that I love your blog. Pop-punk is something I grew up with and, I’ll admit, it left me for a while. I started to find new genres but I found myself back at the same music scene I was at nearly a decade ago. Because I came to the realization that nothing quite compares to the pop-punk genre, I decided to take my own music back to my roots and record a few new pop-punk songs. After throwing around ideas, I decided on making a pop-punk Christmas EP. Today I’m happy to say my vision is a reality athelloxmas.com where you can hear the EP, shop off-the-wall Christmas cards, and a few other nostalgic items. I’d love if you could write about my new site and/or share it with the community you’ve built. Thanks much for all you do.

  9. If you guys want something a little different to review check out What?! from the UK.
    “The first offering from cosmic crusaders, What?! Free-form free from artificial flavours and colours. A crunchy core of dissonant sound abstractions covered in a deliciously psychedelic outer layer of noise drenched quasi-funk.”

  11. Hi guys, my name is Michael and I make experimental electronic music under the moniker Mortal Morning. I am based in the UK and started the project two years ago. Last year, I made a track composed entirely of train sounds. I have been pursuing this concept since then, doing some field recordings of my own, and now I have put out my first EP called ‘The Lost Line’. I know it will appeal to fans of left-field electronic music. I’d love to hear what you think, thank you.

  12. Hi guys,

    I have a submission that I think fits the theme of Inb4track’s independent music with a good deal of effort behind it. It’s called Masters of the Galaxy by the band Emperors of Gnouv. The music is a blend of ambient textures with rhythmic drones, analogue, modular, and digital synths, space-rock guitar parts, and beautiful, complex harmonies woven throughout. The theme is a psychadelic voyage through space.
    Here is the bandcamp link to the album and our Facebook page:

    http://emperorsofgnouv.bandcamp.com/album/masters-of-the-galaxy

    It came out on the 16th of January 2014. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide any further information.

    I would be happy if you like to review it.

    Thanks very much, and greetz from Kassel/Germany!

  15. Thanks for the very nice review of Lonely House!
    Here are the two latest from GALTTA….
    http://galttamedia.bandcamp.com/album/synthetic-love-dream

    Two long duration, just intonation pieces for tuned sine waves, saxophone, drums, and tuned bass. Dark, raw, hi-fidelity tracks, recorded live in the huge, cavernous rooms of BC studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Recorded, mixed, and produced by Martin Bisi in March 2014.
    Each piece consists of a 6 pitch set with a 52 HZ root. All pitches are based off of simple ratios found naturally in the overtone series.
    A stagnant blues; the A-side features a vocal performance by Lydia Lunch with layered tenor sax, sinetone keyboard, tuned bass and drums.
    The B side features a more complex, darker minor interval set, with a soloistic alto sax performance.
    Meditations on Death and Love.

    AND…

    http://galttamedia.bandcamp.com/album/pictures-of-lindsey

    Eight tracks from Swedish composer, dark lord of the pitch wheel, virtuoso song writer, synth bell wizard, sexy vocalist, Adrian Knight.
    An extremely hi–fidelity recording, produced in his foggy Brooklyn bedroom; Born out of a phase of psychosis and dreams of wedding bells, Pictures of Lindsey is an adventure that will have you singing along, seat dancing, scared, and coming back for more. Don’t slip on the oozing smooth sax solos. Don’t rip your parts on the synth bells.
    Watch out for the soaring EVI solo by John Swana on “West Village Girl.”
    A creep-pop masterpiece from our bedroom to yours.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU for the support, and a great site!

    (also…. here is a short film that Jasmine Hirst and Lydia Lunch made in collaboration with the Synthetic Love Dream release.. http://vimeo.com/101549728

  16. Colours That Glow In The Dark is the first EP from the man of ex-Skin Walker infamy and Mancunian hometown fame, HODSON. Released solely on The Waveform Generator (apart from the standard SoundCloud playlist, of course) which is actually set for closure in the next coming weeks sadly, CTGITD is a metaphysical force of abiding atmospheric energy mixed with the strict romantic-relationship ties between the experimental and the now-commercial. A plethora of breaks and trip-glitch harmonies, passive aggressive in their nature met with the solemn fist of messy underground and lo-fi chillout abundances, it’s a killing formula. From start to finish, the CTGITD EP is something worthy of it’s 20-odd minute slot.

    Download the EP for free from the official TWG Bandcamp over at https://thewaveformgenerators.bandcamp.com/album/twg019-colours-that-glow-in-the-dark-ep
    Or stream in higher quality over at the HODSON SoundCloud – https://soundcloud.com/thatmanckid/sets/colours-that-glow-in-the-dark-ep

    Thanks for reading this if you do, thanks for your time and I hope it’s something you’re interested in cause this looks like a tidy little thing you got for yourself here and I would love to be a part of it

    Cheers mate,
    James

  17. Hi,

    I’m Jérémie and I’m a former guitarist of Awake In Sleep. I’ve just released my first album as a one man band called Snow Shards.

    The album is titled Blind, it is 100% home recorded and it is eleven tracks that go through one hour and seven minutes long from various genres as post-rock, ambient, neo-classical with a touch of shoegaze.

    You can download it and/or listen to it right here:

    http://snowshards.bandcamp.com/album/blind

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to it!

    Best regards,
    Snow Shards

  18. Hi,

    If you’re really craving something fresh, strange, but catchy, dancy, badass, and funny music then it would behoove you to give me a listen. I’m a cross between Peaches, Madonna, and Nine Inch Nails, and yet entirely in a category of my own. You’ll have fun, and I promise you won’t regret changing your mind about sending me to the trash heap. Don’t let this slip through the cracks…..let it seep through your mind instead.

    Bless,

    Enjoy it!!!!!

  19. Good evening guys,
    we recently used the wonder of satellite communication to propose SULCUS to interested ears:

    Inspire and/or motivate a single human or animal brain would complete the goal of the SESSION_00 & SESSION_01 project.

    Enjoy some fragments and keep disarranging and exploring the the sonic spectrum.

    SULCUS
