BitCandy's Best New Tracks page is where we feature and handpick the latest new songs we're crazy, madly, passionately deeply in love with. These cool songs we feel are the givers of life, no matter if they are indie, alternative pop, chill out songs or an EDM banger. Because at BitCandy we just think there are two kinds of music. The Awesome...and...The Lame. So if we're all about the Awesome...how do we find it?
We listen (sometimes painfully, especially if Titus Andronicus has new material) to approximately 200 tracks each day and handpick just the top new songs. We source these from more than 1000 artists and labels we follow on YouTube and SoundCloud. We also get tips from our Curators (HINT: this can be you...learn more
here), as well as from other managers, indie club owners, trusted friends, publicists and what's popping on the word of the street. OK...so you may be thinking...well, so what?
Well, that's the problem I don't think we realize we're facing. When it comes to today's 2013
best new tracks ...there's just WAY too much average music being made. Look...all you bros in bedrooms...just STOP making music for a few days. Trust me...the world will be a better place. No, seriously....what I'm talking about is mediocre music taking up our precious time. It's a problem! Who has time to listen to 1400 + songs a week and share the 1-3% that are truly special. Oh, I forgot...we want to provide that solution. Because we think what's more important than having 24 Million songs at your fingertips on iTunes (at last count), or some computerized algorithm, is a tremendously great and trusted music filter.
Speaking of which...can you really "trust" Pandora and their team of minimum wage genome labelers? They figure if you liked "x" you must also like "y" and "z." But we don't think it's as easy as that. No way! Why? Because YOU are smart, on top of your game, and looking for amazing cool songs...and liking "x" might mean you really also like, damn I don't know "k" or "m" or "w"...well you get what I'm saying.
Because todays indie music fan...when it comes to top new songs, most likely loves or has an appreciation for Radiohead, Kanye West, Justice, Daft Punk, Elliott Smith, The Smiths, Grimes, Metz to Ella Fitzgerald and hell, maybe even "Toxic" by Britney Spears. What kind of an algorithm can figure that out? Good luck! Simply put...we just want to deal with the "awesome genre." That's what we do.
And bringing that daily hand picked goodness right to your ears is our joy. Honestly, we think the next most important thing on the web will be who can filter everything the best. Because I don't need 24 Million songs. Just give me the most incredible cool songs on the planet. So if you're looking for the top new songs 2013...we have it for you on BitCandy and our Best New Tracks page. Oh, and don't forget we have a free alternative radio station streaming for you right now. Check it out!
