Submit a CD for Review:

Do you think we would love your new CD? Read through our site to make sure you understand what we are about and what we review before you send us anything. We review alternative music! “What is alternative music,” you may ask? Who the hell knows anymore, but here’s our definition: Alternative music is any rock and punk-rock-based music genres that don’t fit into current mainstream genres. This includes most indie rock, indie pop, punk, post-punk, and college rock. Please, don’t send us any “bubble-gum” rock, and no cover bands (“Recycle Trash, Not Music”).

Please note: we do not guarantee an “orgasmic” review of your record unless you want to buy our company — you can then write whatever you want; and, this is important, your record isn’t guaranteed to be reviewed no matter how much beg, plead, bribe or blackmail us. If the record is good then it will be reviewed — if we think it sucks it won’t. The object of this magazine is to promote good music, not to bash wannabe’s just for the fun of it.

But, hey, what’ve you got to lose. We’ll try to hook you up with the writer most likely to give your record a fair chance, and when we really get excited over hard-to-find releases, we usually push them in any extra manner we can — audio links, lead review spots, interviews, stuff like that, all aimed at helping your record find a wider audience.

If you still want to submit a CD (no EP’s or demos please) for review, send the CD and a bio or press kit to: MUDSUGAR, 107 S. West Street #463, Alexandria, VA 22314.
