Enter Bayside’s “Time Has Come” Cover Contest

Quick, grab your guitar and set up your video camera. Bayside are asking fans to show them what “Time Has Come” sounds like… before they actually post the song for listeners to hear the original version. After sharing the lyrics and tabs for the song online, they’re looking to see what kind of unique interpretations fans will come up with. It’s like Beck’s Song Reader, only a little more achievable given how many musicians didn’t grow up learning how to read sheet music.

Bayside will be choose their three favorite videos at the end of January and reveal the …


Deep Elm Records Promises 10,000 Free Album Downloads If They Reach 20,000 Likes By December 31

An offer like this is too good not to promote. Plus, the people behind it are some of the hardest working in music. Bonus!

Deep Elm Records has become a staple of the alternative music scene since its birth in 1995, but for one reason or another they’ve only garnered a little less than 11,500 Likes on Facebook. We could rant and rant about how their target demographic isn’t exactly the same demo that uses Likes to represent their hobbies, but for the sake of this post let’s put those thoughts to the side and think about how much good …

CONTEST: Win A Signed Vinyl Copy Of Iron & Wine’s ‘Ghost On Ghost’

I don’t have to make a weak attempt at referencing the comic strip Garfield or the movie Office Space for you to understand that Mondays can be the worst. Most of us spend today returning to either school or work, which is something the majority of us would rather not be doing with our time, and it’s only the first time we’ll have to repeat this task in the coming days. Recognizing the potential horror that awaits any given Monday is something we all do, but UTG is here to help the week start a bit better for one lucky …

We have been hyping the release of Pentimento’s self-titled album for some time, but like you we were very perplexed by the lack of pre-orders and normal promotional activities.
