Submissions Policy

Have an album/EP/single/8 track you’d like to see reviewed on the site? You’re in luck! We love listening to new releases! But, to keep our inboxes happy and to increase your chances of coverage, we have a few guidelines that we require all submissions to adhere to.

Please do not send mp3 attachments. Direct download links and streams are best.

We especially love receiving releases from California-based bands and labels. This isn’t a requirement, but it will definitely spark our interest.
