AboutHotSpotMusic.hotspotmusicOh hi there. Maybe you’re new around these parts. Let me show you around.
HotSpotMusic was started with a very simple premise - to be a guide and a filter for an overwhelming amount of new music being released and to restore the focus on the music and not the hype. We prioritise album reviews - the best way to consume an artist’s work - and we try and post one review a day tending to focus on indie rock but always roaming the prairies for more.
We’re also tired of arbitrary decimal ratings so we have a very simple ranking system: albums you should stop whatever it is you’re doing and listen to right now, albums you should plan on listening to soon and those that can probably wait until later.
What else? Oh yes:
- - Monthly playlists of all the reviewed albums
- - Sunday Sermons is a special review one day of the week to reflect on some of the forgotten, classic or revived albums that deserve some attention
- - Monday Miscellany is a new column with a roundup of random tracks from the blogosphere.
- - An upcoming releases page so you can get excited about the things we’re excited about too
Some of these happen more frequently than others but all of them do, in some form, exist. Want to recommend something or just say hi? Do it over on Twitter, Facebook, on our collaborative Spotify playlist or if you're an artist, drop us your sounds!
Send me your sounds Thanks for reading, we hope you enjoy it.
