Promos, premiere offers, streams, track links, tips & releases:
– email@example.com to send tracks, releases, EPs.
I endeavour to listen to everything I get sent but due to the high volume of emails coming in, it is now impossible to listen to everything. Please don’t chase up after you’ve sent an email – I will read the first one even if it takes me a few weeks. If I don’t get in touch, please don’t take it personally – I have only a finite amount of time to listen to the music sent to me.
TL;DR: I prefer streaming first, download second.
Please consult my Band Tips guide to contacting bloggers at First Music Contact or my more recent Irish Times contribution on the same subject before you get in touch. Please try and give as much advance of the release as possible as it often takes me a few weeks to get through everything sent in.
If you are sending music. I prefer it sent in this order: Soundcloud, Bandcamp, direct link to MP3s hosted on your site, Youtube or other hosted service. You should only send email attachments if requested. Public or private streams are good.
Gig news, festival press releases & live info
– firstname.lastname@example.org. I only feature stuff of interest to the site and its audience in Dublin in the weekly Gig Guide so please don’t be offended if I don’t feature you. Festivals and really special non-regular events I want to hear from you.
