Welcome to our new semi-crowdsourced, STAFF-curated annotated selection of tools, tips, articles, and resources that YOU (yes, you!) can use to share with your friends, colleagues, roommates, and random people on the street when they ask you – “what is new music,” or even more pertinently, “why do you like this stuff?”

Semi-crowdsourced means we’re open to your suggestions and contributions. Feel free to use the form below to send suggestions. Staff-curated means we will review it to decide if it gets on this page, so thanks in advance for your consideration and patience.
