Editor Picks:

In A Band/Representing A Band:

If you’re interested in sending us a release or some music for us to check out, we request that you not try to send us attachments (for fear it will crash our email). Weblinks are just dandy, though Bandcamp and Soundcloud links are preferable for embedding purposes should we decide to write about you here at iM. (If you don’t have at least one of these accounts yet for your music… you might want to get on that)* Also – send us downloadable links for the tracks/albums if you’re looking for radio play, review or promo; they make things easy on our end to distribute to our writers/editors (and don’t crash our inbox with attachments!)

If you’re based in Toronto – or swinging through town – you might also be interested in coming on the show for an interview and iM session; maybe you want to let us know about an upcoming show so we can add it to our upcoming events, or invite us out so we can catch you in the act as part of iM WIRED. For that matter, maybe you’re looking to play a show and might be interested in playing an iM showcase. If one of these are the case, DO feel free to drop us a line too!

Not Affiliated With A Band:

Considering a partnership/advertising opportunity with The iM? Looking to give us news tips, music recommendations, exuberantly excessive monetary donations? (we like those too…) Or maybe, you’re a writer** or photographer*** interested in becoming a contributor for THE iNDiE MACHiNE? Regardless of your motivations – you can reach us through teh tubes of the internetz via the contact form to the right….

Whadda ya waiting for? Drop us a line!


*If you’re going to send us archaic links for your music *cough*MySpace*cough*, please don’t.
** If you’re looking to become a contributor, please send us links to some of your previous work – either published or unpublished; so long as we can tell whether you can coherently string together words in the English language or shoot a decent photo.
