IndieFeed is a great podcast because it plays great songs by up-and-coming rock bands that need the exposure. Each episode is released about every one to seven days and is only a few minutes long. This is because each episode is devoted to playing and discussing only one song. I like this because it really puts the spotlight on the artist featured in the episode.
I also like this podcast because it is all about the music. First, the song is played, and then the host, whose name I cannot find anywhere, talks about the artist for a minute or two. There is no pointless banter about what is on the host’s mind that day- he is clearly speaking to promote the artist. He gives a little summary about the band’s members, albums, and present status and includes the URL to their website and MySpace. This is excellent for the artist because if listeners really enjoy the song they hear, they can instantly become fans. It is also great for the interested listener who has immediate access to more information and music by the artist.
All in all, IndieFeed is a great podcast because it exposes listeners to great music and artists that they probably have never heard of before.
