Explore independent music scenes around the world by searching for a style of music, an artist or band name; or a city, country or region in the search bar below - it's that simple. Type Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud or iTunes, Bandcamp, Beatport, etc to find indie songs, albums, videos and mixtapes, and even playlists on your favorite streaming and download platforms. Find unsigned, independent, underground, emerging and up-and-coming artists, bands, music producers, music composers, sound designers, sound engineers and instrumentalists making amazing sounds near you and far away. This amazing indie music search engine is so awesome it may even be able to detect neighbors singing in their showers, but don't it won't detect them when they're are doing exciting things to each other (wink, wink) or when they are snoring in harmony afterwards.

About This Music Podcast:

For the past 9 years, Adobe & Teardrops has proudly presented reviews, interviews, livestream festivals, and podcasts of all the best in Americana and punk. Adobe & Teardrops is committed to representing voices in the Americana world that are too-often overlooked: women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ individuals.

Adobe & Teardrops is maintained by editor-in-chief Rachel Cholst, a New York City-based educator and (thanks to the blog’s success) music journalist. Her work appears in No Depression, The Boot, Country Queer, and formerly Wide Open Country. She’s also the editor-in-chief of the forthcoming queer country zine, Rainbow Rodeo, believed to be the first print magazine devoted to queer country music.

Sharing music isn’t a means to an end, though. Rachel regularly contributes Adobe & Teardrops‘ earnings to LGBTQ+ and racial justice causes, and she is a signatory of the Country Music Against White Supremacy pledge, and encourages you to do the same.
