If this is your first read of the epic No Pants Record Store Shopping tweets to find music and the post companions…. Go make a pot of coffee and sit in a comfy chair because you will be in a music rabbit hole for quite sometime!
In the last posts I gave you January , February’s AND March’s music findings. And at this point I stopped counting how many bands I have highlighted. pssst if you haven’t figured it out you can click on all the pretty hyperlinks and it will take you to the previous music months! I was originally planning 2 posts because this was a Record Store Day special. It’s tough to fit in time to search out all this music so I only did one session in April. I still think RSD is a copout. If you are a music junkie and love finding music you don’t need a special day to do it. You do it all the damn time. And in full Nikki snark fashion, my music findings aren’t always about new releases, they are about new findings; good music doesn’t have a shelf life.
Again, many of these bands are from my searches on Bandcamp, I really suggest you skip your fancy coffee and go buy some music. And as always I listen to more than one track (well if the band has more than one track) before I even bother to promote them.
As always, all you have to do is click on a link. If you like a band, hell even if you don’t like a band here; share this post through your social media nonsense. This isn’t about me. This isn’t about you. It’s about sharing unsigned and independent musicians work. Don’t like mainstream radio on the interwebs; stop sending youtube links and send something that people can listen and give their money to.
