There’s a humongous amount of music out there, and thanks to the power of the Internet, more of it is within your reach than ever before. Sites like Soundcloud and Bandcamp have helped many thousands of artists get their feet of the ground by providing them exposure from outside their local area that they might have never gotten otherwise. While having such an extended potential audience is fantastic for an up-and-coming artist, it’s easy for that artist to get lost among the dizzying number of small acts available to the tuned-in consumer.
Here are ten excellent groups from around the web that aren’t being promoted and reviewed by Rolling Stone or Pitchfork. They won’t get signed to Def Jam or EMI anytime soon either, so you can rest assured that you’re supporting a homegrown labor of love when you listen to these artists.
