What a great month October has been for new entries on Emerging Indie Bands with approaching a hundred new bands featured.
Making the choice for band of the month – Editors Choice was a pleasure as I listened once again to the reviews for the month.
Thanks once again to the the thousands of musicians who brighten up my days.
From the USA – Ease Up is my selection, with their 21st Century take on reggae.

The band of the month for September as chosen by the readers of the stable of websites that make up IBB is from England.
Emerging Indie Bands
The stats for selecting the readers choice is made over 7 different criteria and this month – Lieutenant Tango – is the result of that algorithm.
Thank you to the readers of the websites and thank you to the bands – without both of you these pages would just be blank spaces.

After years of having been asked to do it I have finally decided to come up with a new section – my personal choice of a band I have reviewed.
At just past midnight on the last day of each month I will post an Editors choice as Band of the Month, which is bands I have reviewed in the past month. To keep the writers ego in check at just before midnight on the same day I will also post the readers choice of band of the month – well that is the plan anyway.
The September Editors choice band of the month is the German band C-Types.

Bands are constantly looking for new ways to promote their music. And while the internet has been seen as the ultimate hope for emerging bands, it still remains true that it is hard to get a tool to manage the band and reach the people that may like the band’s music.
It all started with Myspace, it was nice, but soon it became a spam dump (not to say the player was a nightmare). After that many options have appeared, from reverbnation to bandcamp, and even facebook pages with music tabs.
But still they all seem incomplete, you either only have music, or surfing to find new things is almost impossible.
That’s why we created bandness.com. A web platform for the bands to share their content and the music lovers to find new bands. With deeper profiles, with concerts, photos and selling options. And a search engine, based on acoustic signals, called Eddie, that will find similar songs to your all-time favourite songs.
And furthermore, we don’t like to stay behind a screen and we help to promote and set up concerts, bring music to new spaces like buses and other cool stuff.
We are glad to have bands such as Freedonia (SP), Black Pony (MX), June’s Kaleidoscope (UK), Clockwork (GE) Velocette (BR), Eira (US), Go-Neko (AR) and many others that are part of our growing network.
Join us at Bandness and start enjoying new music on the internet.
David Rovics, who readers of the site will recall is a singer who takes a sharp angle on political issues around the world. I had the opportunity to catch up with him half an hour ago on a Skype interview while he languishes in a hotel in Narita Airport.
He talks about possible reasons for New Zealand not allowing him entry and the latest news on the Australian leg of the twelve country tour. David will be performing via skype at The Free House in Nelson in New Zealand this evening.
While he has been hanging around in a hotel David Rovics created a new song – Spies Are Reading My Blog.
