New York Music Daily was designed as a place where people with busy lives can discover good new music, fast. In the time it takes to hear a single song or watch a video on youtube, you can read about a new artist here every day and get a good sense of whether or not you might want to investigate their music further. And if you do, there are plenty of links to take you there.
This blog was launched very quietly in August of 2011 by one of the founders of popular New York music blog Lucid Culture, in anticipation of a post-Facebook, revolutionary-era future. You can visit New York Music Daily whenever you want: there’s nothing for sale here and no spam or apps to pester you or keep track of your whereabouts. New York Music Daily is just here for you if you’re looking for music that’s too smart, too edgy and too nonconformist for the one-percenter Bushwick and Echo Park blogs, the corporate media, and those who imitate either of them. There’s something new here 365 days a year, pretty much every day: free downloads, videos, live streams, concert and album reviews and a monthly New York City live music calendar which serves as a foundation for most of the coverage here. Born out of a punk rock sensibility, informed by history, inspired by the freedom fighters who are risking everything to reclaim the world for the 99% of us who’ve been excluded from the debate over our future for too long, New York Music Daily is an under-the-radar soundtrack for our party for the right to fight.
Are monsters made, or are they born this way? You decide. Visit frequently, and you can help create one.
