Thanks Baltimore + Portals community

Living Spaces

Last Friday Living Spaces #2 took place in Baltimore, and it was special. We’re thrilled to have helped the Portals crew bring such a good mix of music, art, and people together under one roof. Much thanks goes out to all the artists involved (that’s Soft Cat pictured above) and to the nice folks at The Crown.

Portals has a lush photo recap up on their site. They also shot our “Habitat” the other day, click through to see where we work.

Mid-Year Zeitgeist + Ones to Watch


Recently we teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music to once again present a special half-year Music Blog Zeitgeist, looking at the most-blogged artists of 2014 thus far. Listen to BBC’s Tom Robinson countdown the top 20 here.

In addition to the overall list, we refreshed our Ones To Watch feature for the second half of the year. As before, this uses Zeitgeist data to pinpoint newly-emerging artists by applying two simple qualifiers: it’s their first time on the most-blogged list, and they’ve yet to release a full-length LP. Tracks from those artists can heard paired with words from the very blogs that posted them, here.


Hype Machine indexes hundreds of music sites and collects their latest posts for easy streaming and discovery. We're here to help you find the best new music first.
