Read on to find out how to submit a track for consideration!
WE HAVE RULES! Please follow them so that we don't weep into our shoes.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS NOVEMBER 10th, 2011. No exceptions.
- If you are in a shoegaze and/or dream pop oriented band (even if you consider yourself on the fringe), then you can submit. You do not need to be on a label. You do not need to have an album out. If you are gazing and recording it, you can submit. Even if it's a solo effort. Even if this is your FIRST effort. You have a chance at this!
- Submit your track to firstname.lastname@example.org. You MUST put "200,000 Compilation Submission" in the title of the email, or be forever lost in the insanity that is our email.
- You can submit ONE track, in mp3 format only. Don't flood our email with multiple submissions, please! Rob Turner, our communications director, is already crazy busy. Please don't make him lose his mind and quit on us. WE NEED HIM!
-Don't waste our time submitting a track with poor sound quality. Seriously. If you are recording music, you know the difference between good and bad audio quality. Use these skills. GOOD QUALITY AUDIO ONLY PLEASE.
- In the body of the email, you need to put 4 things: a) Your/your band's name. b) The track title. c) links to anything promotional (bandcamp, a fb page, WHATEVER), if you have it. You don't have to if you have none. d) (optional) tell us about you/your band.
Have any questions? Email email@example.com with a title of "ATTN AMBER: compilation questions" and I will answer them. Don't message me, Danny, Rob, or WTSH via FB about this.
Pretty easy, right?! We are so stoked to hear what you guys have! The 200,000 Gazes Compilation will be even larger (it may even be a double album) and more widely circulated than the first, so get onboard! Feel free to share this note with anyone you know. Ready, set, GO!!
