    Demo Submissions

    Posted by in Info 0

    You can rely upon that fact that we are currently accepting demos in the following formats:

    1| E-mail a URL that contains a bio and three of your project’s most representative pieces in downloadable mp3 format. (Do not send us mp3s directly- Sendspace etc is fine. Alternately, a link to your myspace/soundcloud/bandcamp page is o.k. too.)

    2| Snail-mail a three-song CD complete with your project’s bio to the address above.

    3| Scream your desires from the top of a mountain, repeating “Dynamophone!” three times in quick succession. ( This approach, while potentially less successful is quite enjoyable.)
