The 4am is a selection composed entirely of music sent to me by artists. If you want your music (and, hell, I’ll even take field recordings and spoken-word) to be played on The 4am, email your 128kbps-plus mp3 files directly to email@example.com. Include your website address, please. The 4am is mixed down to 128kbps, is of no set length and is released on no set schedule. If you like the 4am, please tell people. The 4am shits fireworks and baby heads.

No time for extensive notes this time. Starhead are from Denton, TX. I didn’t even know they had people there. Marazene are from Chicago, and bring the epic sweep at the end of “AnTiThesis.” The Thing With The Stuff is from Mars. The Red Light District are from LA and look like they put on a hell of a show. It’s never a new round of 4am without Kemper Norton. And The Face Of Human Error is an experimental musician from Dublin.
Discover them now. I hope you like what you find.
