Submissions (Music Reviews)
Please read if you plan on sending music to zoekissel.com to be considered for review.
• The address to send all review material to is 38 Abbot Rd. Campbell Hall Rm 328, East Lansing, MI 48825. Be sure you address the package to Zoë Kissel.
• Music in the garage genre only, please! If you’re not garage rock, I won’t review it.
• Full album art is required for a review. If you also want to include a band photo in the package, even better. I tend to post band photos in my reviews. No pre-releases or CD-R copies you made for your friends.
• Only send analog music to be reviewed. That means physical vinyl and cassettes. Download cards, links, mp3 files, and CDs will not get reviewed.
• If you send material to me, you will not get it back. Understand that reviews are promotion for your band. Whether I review your music or not, do not ask for your material back.
• Put a postal address on each and every piece of music sent in. Mailing is expensive and I don’t want to lose your work!
• Just because you send in music, that does not mean I will review it. Depending on the amount of submissions I am receiving, it will not be possible to review every album I receive. Before deciding whether or not to review a submission, I will listen to the album completely. I reserve the right to choose what I review.
• Reviews may take a while. My “On Mondays I listen to…” music reviews are published once a week, on Mondays. That means one review a week. Be patient. If I decide to review you, I will contact you when the review is published.
