We still haven't figured out exactly how to deal with submissions. Pigeons & Planes was founded on the idea of providing a balance—of genres, of jokes and serious content, and most important, of indie and mainstream.
As the site continues to grow, we get more submissions than we can handle, but we think it's important to go through as many as we can. That's what we're here for, and that's sometimes how we find our favorite new artists, like this guy last week. We see so many other sites relying on record labels and PR companies for their music, and we think that gives an unfair advantage to people with money and connections.
So we'll always be open to taking submissions, and we decided to try out this Saturday Submissions feature to share some of what we find. Here are five random submissions that we got recently.
