Show #221: Bullet Points

I don't think I've been this surprised or excited by a release in quite a while.  Honestly, I was out of the loop.  Had no idea this was coming, or I would have warned you guys ahead of time.  Frankly, it was last Friday morning when I saw bassist David Barajas' post on MFT that had a new band with a new release out that morning.  Once I saw the lineup -- Barajas (Extra Blue Kind, State, Stealing Volume), P. David Hazel (Extra Blue Kind, Beta male), TJ Briggs (Beta Male), and Matt Beaumont (Coolidge) -- it was a no-brainer.  I purchased and was listening to it five minutes later.  Within two hours, I had already secured the band for a podcast the next day. Now, a mere three days after it's release, I bring you, gentle snowflakes, fresh new music from a fresh new band.  What does it sound like?  Pretty much EXACTLY like you would expect, assuming you are familiar with the repertoire of those four veterans.  (Which you should be if you pay attention to anything I've been saying over the years.)  I was not disappointed, hopefully you will not be either.

Your mission:

PS - Yes, I know I say Show 222 in the episode.  The two were swapped in release order so that we could promote the April 30 show.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
