If you appreciate good music and have a good ear for music, you have no doubt, felt rather frustrated with the new music releases that the record companies and main stream media have been serving up. The music industry, for quite some time now, has been unwilling to take a chance on anything that is really new. It works with what it considers to be tried and true formulas that work in marketing music. This focus is mostly on image and packaging. Now you don’t even have a band or artist that does their own writing but the industry tends to work with its own song writers and then puts together a pretty boy band, for example, and coaches them into an act. The result is plainly stultifying.

The effort is to shift attention away from the music and on to the dancing and the overall image but many people still respond to good music when offered up. But where can one find the best new music releases?

I once ran an internet radio station and I decided that, rather than musical artists being able to pay for plays, or the most voted for artists getting the most plays or artists being able to pay for greater exposure, I would personally review each submission and make the choices myself. The idea was to create a personality who was a critic and mogul. His name was Fritz Kundler and soon Fritz was getting submissions from independent musical artists all around the world.

I was frankly amazed at the amount of high quality and original music there was from un-signed artists. Fritz did interviews and many bands and musical artists had similar stories to one in particular who, at one time, had a contract with Columbia Records. This female artist told of how Columbia Records once had many different divisions for many diverse musical genres but these all got shut down and they informed her that they were shelving her music and not going to do anything with it but she could not have it back either. She got a lawyer and got her music back and has gone independent.

So, if you are interested in finding the best new music releases, you will need to take a little time and explore some music sites to find something you really like. But it’s a fun journey of exploration and there is quite a lot of good stuff there that you won’t hear on the mainstream media.
