Countless minutes of music are released by fledgling artists on the internet and elsewhere each day. Without a record label or significant following, it can be rough for independent artists to gain momentum in such a massive market for music. Our goal is to give new, good music a bit of a chance in such a huge domain.
We are the music makers and this is our music. This subreddit is dedicated to the musical artists that inhabit reddit. It is used to showcase new, in progress, or old pieces of music. It can also allow for the critique of your works in progress as well as the discussion of ideas that any musical artist can have. We are not genre specific and welcome all styles of music.
Listentothis is the place to discover new and overlooked music. All submissions link directly to music streams. Automated moderation removes spam, reposts, household name bands, and poor amateur music. Other content includes AMAs from on-topic artists, an album discussion club, and genre appreciation threads. Content is tagged by genre and split into editions for easy browsing. Music charts are posted monthly. Sidebar features multireddits that include all 600+ of the other music subreddits.
r/listentous -- a democracy for music snobs. "Listentous is like having the entire musical world curated for you by submitters who really give a damn about music. Just eight tracks a day, but submitted by people who chose to take on the responsibility and challenge of sharing their best music - people who managed to do so well enough in the general election to get the support of the subreddit's readership." -- /u/evilnight l2tqp
The Republic of Music is modeled after /r/music, but with a twist - only content created or published within the last three months will be allowed, and reposted or rehosted content is prohibited. Audio, video, news, reviews, art, pretty much anything music-related is allowed in this subreddit as long as it is no more than three months old.
A subreddit for really great, insightful articles and discussion. Please follow reddiquette, and READ THE ARTICLE before voting or discussing. Downvotes should only be used if something doesn’t contribute to intelligent discussion, not just because you disagree. Please use the report button if you see something that doesn’t belong.
Post-rock: an umbrella term to describe the mostly instrumental music genre that uses rock instrumentation but disregards typical “rock” song structure. For post-rock music discussion, discovery, news, reviews, and your favorite tracks and videos.
/r/MusicVideos is the place for music videos: Creatively produced video that matches a single song soundtrack. /r/MusicVideos is *NOT* the place for album art, lyric videos, kinetic text, cellphone or webcam videos, slideshows, vacation videos, live performance, advertisements, stolen footage videos. Just Music Videos!
