After another depressing election season (May here in PA), it’s nice to find something that’s really worth supporting with all your heart and soul.

 

No, I’m not talking about do-nothing political candidates. I’m talking about great independent music!

 

SongFight! offers a weekly roster of artists performing songs written around a common theme or phrase selected by the site’s creators. Visitors do the rest via the voting section.

 

Here are some examples of recent entries and a sample of a recent ballot.

 

At least there may finally be some democracy in the music world even if there isn’t much anywhere else.

 

Make your voice heard!

Who needs Britney?

Britney Spears album

Sure, you could go to your local record chain and buy that latest Britney Spears album like everybody else.

Then again, you could step into a store like Hoodlums New & Used Music & DVDs, on the campus of Arizona State University, Kief’s in Lawrence, KS, Park Avenue CD’s, in Orlando FL, or anyone of 70 other independently owned and operated retailers across the country for something a little different.

Just as in other markets, music consumers realize there are other products out there besides the latest commodity being pushed by every major media outlet and members of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores are banded together to help fill that need.

Here’s the organization’s webpage. But be warned, independent artists.

True to the group’s philosophy of providing an alternative to what they call the “color-by-numbers” approach of larger retail chains, the coalition claims it DOES NOT work as a distribution hub for its members and that all purchasing decisions are made locally.

There are individual listings for each of the coalition’s members, some which do represent small but independent groups of stores and the coalition says it is guarded about its membership.

However, even if you don’t live anywhere near one of these stores, many have websites that you can check out for more details.
