KVSC is dedicated to playing a variety of progressive, independent and local music. We encourage all aspiring musicians to send us music, but remember there is no guarantee that your submission will be played. Each week, we receive an abundance of material to review. If you can’t get a hold of us immediately, please be patient. We have limited time to review music and want to make sure we are as a thorough as possible.
We strive to review as many records as possible. However, we are especially attentive to local artists. Minnesota artists are encouraged to conspicuously label their music as such – this helps ensure that records do not fall through the cracks. The process of reviewing music can be lengthy. Even if you submit local music, please allow us some time to review it. Also, being a local artist will only get you so far. We judge everyone by the same scale: quality.
We accept CDs and vinyl only. Please do not send: tapes, DATs, MP3s, websites, reel-to-reel, minidisks, etc. We simply don’t have the ability to process such formats.
We appreciate press sheets containing information about the band, e.g. location, members, perhaps a RIYL, etc. However, in our opinion, less is more. We suggest bands limit their material to one information sheet. We kindly ask that you do not send us press packets or folders full of reviews, glossies, tour sheets, etc.
You are welcome to try and contact us regarding previously sent music, but please remember that we receive a high volume of calls each day.
Please consider these simple guidelines when working with the KVSC Music Department, as they will ensure the best possible working relationship. Thanks kindly and have a wonderful day!
