“He’s making a list, he’s checking it tw…..”
You KNOW I’m checking my top ten list of the year a whole lot more than twice, that’s for sure! It is that magical, wonderful, most-awesome part of the year where we finally get to start releasing the nominations for 2018’s BEST NEW SOUND here at SBS, from all of the EPs and albums submitted to us from the beginning of December last year to the end of November in the year we’re in. STOKED as ever to share a whole bunch of names that truly deserve to be recognized for their stunning efforts and contributions to another incredible year of amazing independent music – and we’ll start doing that later on today here at the page in our Special Reports section, once a day, for the next ten days!
After which point, each band and artist on the list will still have a couple days to rally the troops before we turn our list over to YOU to help us achieve a full consensus on who will live on in immortality here at sleepingbagstudios as the year’s official BEST NEW SOUND for all to see on our wall of fame. You’ll be welcome to vote from December 18th – December 31st at midnight, and we’ll announce the official winner on our site in early January. More details to come as we get closer to the official start date – so make sure to keep your eyes on our pages and be ready to support your favorites of the year when the time comes!
Lastly, I’d just like to sincerely thank each and every single one of you out there who have taken the time to submit records to us this year – and to each and every one of you out there that takes the time to read our articles, watch our shows, listen to our shows, get their biographies or press releases done through us – you know what I’m getting at here…if you’ve been involved with us and our site at any time, we completely appreciate YOU and YOUR support – so thank YOU!
Can’t wait to celebrate these amazing artists & bands with you all this year – and can’t wait to see how you’ll vote!
– Jer @ SBS
