Crucial Cut of the Month – July 2013

crucial cut july 2013

Every morning, right after we wipe the sleep from our eyes and figure out where the hell we are, gives away a free MP3. Today, it might be acid-damaged psych-rock, while tomorrow might bring pop-punk, neo-chillwave, weird-beard freak-folk or backpacker hip-hop. You never know what you’re gonna get, and now, we’re asking you to tell us what you like best and vote in our Crucial Cut of the Month contest. It’s a chance to pick your favorite free MP3 from the last month and help your favorite emerging acts grab a little digital ink.

Here’s how it works: On the first of every month, we post a poll like the one below. Listed here is every song we gave away during July 2013. You have all of August to cast your ballots, and on Sept. 1 — the day we roll out the next poll — we’ll announce the top vote-getter. What do they win? can’t guarantee superstardom or big, fat paychecks, but we can and will profile each Crucial Cut winner with a Q&A feature, and throughout the month, we’ll promote their music on our homepage and via social networks. Click here to read the piece we did on last month’s winner, Bridges and Powerlines.

Check out the full list of July 2013 downloads below, and be sure to click on the artists’ names to view their individual posts, read their back-stories and, most importantly, listen to their songs. Voting ends at 11:59PM EST on Aug 31. Good luck to all the artists.
