Avant Music News 2015 Update

imgres2014 was a record year for Avant Music News, in terms of postings, traffic, and overall busy-ness. We’re hoping 2015 continues in the same fashion.

Just a few quick notes regarding random topics:

  • We have new page on our top menu that links to our annual “best of” lists (or just go here). These lists always prove to be some of our most popular material, and now they are easier to find.
  • Last year we posted 2170 articles, of which 130 were original reviews, and 24 were original interviews.
  • Our review backlog continues to grow, with about 25 review requests per published review. If you are a musician, label, or PR person, please don’t be discouraged if we don’t get back to you regarding your requests. There just isn’t enough time in the day. But please continue to send requests, as we do read and consider every single one.
  • With respect to reviews, if you are a seasoned music reviewer who would like to contribute to Avant Music News, please drop me a line with a few writing samples. As noted above, we receive tons of promo material for review, and it would be nice to have a couple more people knocking out the reviews.
  • Our current reviewers are both awesome and nice! Special thanks to Dan, Dan, Stephen, Monique, Vincent, and others for all of their valuable contributions.
