City Paper just released its annual “Big Music Issue”, and it included a piece on “50 Local Releases You Should Hear“. While I definitely don’t agree with every selection on this list, I was happy to see it was a decently inclusive one –Black Zheep, DJ Angelbaby, DJ Pierre, Greenspan, James Nasty, Los, Mighty Mark, Wendel Patrick and Young Moose all got recognition on the list. Media is a key component to any artist’s success, especially independent artists, and the support that artists get through media exposure is just as crucial. So if you’re looking for local talent to support, consider these artists. Check out the list, which includes You Tube clips and other links.
