Update : Spring 2013

The battle rages on!

We're still working on that re-design folks! And we're still looking for new writers and folks to help keep Hybrid alive and kicking. If you're interested in helping out, please send us an email! And thanks for your patience.

We're also trying to integrate more digital download reviews for the artists. We know every penny counts when you are promoting a record and we're here to try to help the indie kids out.

We're also trying to find some fresh blood interested in bringing you the very best in independant and mainstream music reviews, live reviews, and feature articles! If you are interested in contributing to Hybrid, please email Rachel Fredrickson.

Thanks for stopping in!

Submission Guidelines:

At this time we accept submissions on Compact Disc and digital download... and sometimes vinyl. Please don't send us links to stream music from your myspace/facebook/bandcamp/etc page. You are welcome to send us links to a full download but we don't have the resources to stream your music and review it based on that.

Feel free to send any review materials to the address above. Be advised however, we receive a ton of records for consideration each month and believe it or not, someone listens to every last one. If you've read through our reviews, hopefully it's become apparent that we live with every record we review for a while befiore committing anything to print.

This is precisely what separates hybrid from other publications. As opposed to giving your record the customary once-over treatment, we'll give it a thorough listening and the opportunity for it to grow on us, if at first we don't like it. We feel it's a bit disengenious to both the artists and our readers not to do so. Some music is just like that; sometimes it takes time to unfold the layers to fully appreciate the artistry in the recordings.

Keep in mind though, while we listen to every record we receive, we do not review everything. If your record is selected for review, our reviews editor will send you the respective link when the review posts. While you may feel inclined to send us follow-up notes regarding your packages, it's really not necessary. If the music is good (we know, your music is good) it will hopefully get reviewed. If we find it absolutely abhorrent, be assured, we'll say that too.

hybrid is the result of years and years of disillusionment with tepid journalism and dealing with the "content" business. It's comprised of a core staff of amazing contributors who've been involved in all segments of the media and music industry for years. It's a digital publication for music lovers, without the pretension and grab-assing that usually accompanies the complicated genre of music collectively known as Indie rock. Our intent is to cover artists who are passionate about their music and possess undying integrity in their art. The bottom line: we're passionate about music and it's of no consequence to us what label you're on--or if you're even on a label at all. Some of the most innovative and interesting music we've received has been self-released. We also possess an insatiable desire to discover music that make us feel alive.

Suffice to say, either way, you can expect that we'll be objective and honest in all of our reviews. Count on it.
