Holy Shiz!!!!!!!

Independent music is alive and thriving!!!!!!

We are filled with emotion today. Good songs and great albums can still be made and get out there to the public without having to be a part of the corporate machine.

After we posted this entry yesterday on the brilliant Eric Hutchinson, his new album - Sounds Like This - not only jumped out of nowhere onto the iTunes chart but it raced up all the way to #9. Number nine! All this without being on a freakin' label!!!!!!!

That's INSANE!

Guess you guys agreed with us, Eric Hutchinson is awesome.

And, one of our other favorites, the fucking phenomenal Meiko is doing well too!!!!

We featured her exquisite tunes in this post back in July.

Meiko's self-financed and SELF-RELEASED album is currently at #85 on the iTunes chart!!!

We are just soooo incredibly happy that you guys value Perez's opinion when it comes to music. And, more importantly, we are thrilled that we can help some truly deserving artists get a little bit of recognition.

Music is our passion and we love to share it!

    It's not that people value your opinion, it's that they agree with it. I don't value your opinion but I do like some of the artists that you feature for example.

    I suggest you check out the music of Robert German or Gregory Douglas if you're really looking for something unique and independent. This sounds pretty boring to me.

    someone's ego is getting a little too big… I like reading the gossip and stuff but dude c'mon already. There's plenty of people who find out about new artists through other ways, much the same way you find them I'm sure

    don't know if Perez should really get all the credit for it, but bottom line is a talented guy is starting to get recognition for his music. And that's awesome for him!

    You were totally right about this one–I fell in love with EH the second I clicked play! I understand the ego-tripping, I knew about Colbie Caillat long before she was popular so I feel like I "discovered" her, too. hehe

    Perez….I find out about new music thru many diff ways, but thank you for sharing stuff that I sometimes don't know about. Sometimes I like what you post, sometimes I don't…point is, you're sharing and I sometimes find out about great stuff sooner than i normally would have. Thank u!

    Perez you really do have great taste in music. I was passing the word about Eric Hutchinson all day yesterday after listening….he's really great! Thanks for bringing us some great music!! Love you my little oompa loompa!!

    perez you are awesome… yes you write about tons of trash, but it's funny… i LOVE when you share new music with us! i listened to eric hutchinson all day yesterday and referred him to all my friends and i am happy to see he is coming to my city in 2 weeks! hooray! thanks for being awesome and real and fun and irreverent and daring. you rock!

    Perez posts about an artist, it jumps to the top of the charts. Perez posts a link to youtube, and the view numbers explode. Just be sure to use your power for good not for evil, Perez.

    I actually ignore your music picks, I'm not interested in watching random music videos when I come here. You were right about Amy Winehouse though, and I've heard you helped her breakthrough to American success.

    I've been a fan of Eric's for abotu 3 years and his name has never been on any sort of chart before. I totally give credit to Perez for finding this great music and publicizing it. Thanks Perez!

  53. ???? says – reply to this


    53

    wtf. independent music? i see nothing remotely independent on that list.

  54. SassyDove says – reply to this


    54

    Chill Perez, chill!! Come on, the guy did the job and put these songs together so the credit should be his, not yours. Anywaaaaaaaaaaay, I think he is very americanized in a sense that he would be good to play on tv series like Friends or in movies like American Pie. Don't think he is a massive talent but he surely would entertain the kids.
    So, way to go Eric, good luck.

    PEREZ IS A CONFLICTED FAG WHO HAS WHORED HIMSELF OUT, WHICH IS FINE, BUT IT'S TOO BAD HE DOESN'T REALIZE HE'S A HYPOCRITICAL PIECE OF SHIT.

    i saw eric hutchinson at a tiny bar in my town 2 years ago and have listened to him ever sine–he has the most amazing personality and i am not surprised he is making it in the biz! he is awesome!

  71. nel says – reply to this


    71

    You need to feature Colbie Caillat!! She is truly amazing and i am glad she is blowing up too! I have found a few of my new favorite artists thanks to YOU PEREZ and i thank you! STEFY, Meiko, and now Eric Hutchinson!!! You rock!! Now its time for you to highlight Colbie too! muah!

  72. m says – reply to this


    72

    Mr. Perez,

    I first discovered meiko when you posted about her a couple of months ago and I think she is phenomenal!!! I was so happy that she decided to put her lovely album on itunes recently! She is going to be HUGE!

    oh perez, it's because you have such great taste in music. I totally value your opinion. thanks for letting us know about all the great music out there!

  77. Power of Perrrrez says – reply to this


    77

    Perez, we know you have a big green head, and love yourself.. but that is okay, cause u probably did push eric hutchinson up in the charts. I totally frickin bought the iTunes after u posted it. You should become an itunes affiliate, and link to the music… more $$$$ for Perezzzzzzito.

    I'm just glad that Chiodos is on there. They fkn kick ass :)

    With all of Perez's loyal followers I'm not surprised EH's album climbed to top 10. I saw him at the show last night and I think the top 10 status went to his head. His music would have been much more enjoyable without the obnoxious chatter about how great he is in between each song.

  81. Just says – reply to this


    81

    Please don't sell-out. We may agree with your suggestions now, but if we smell a sell-out you will loose your audience and credibility faster than you can say I'm no sell-out!

    Eric is awesome I have been a fan for years. Last year, my roommate helped convince him to visit Minneapolis for a show where he opened for the Bodeans ( lame Know) then he asked for a ride home cause it was cold and he and his friend got kind of weirded out that I was taking photos of him in the back seat of my car. But honestly, he is great and very down to earth and hilarious in concert.

    Are you kidding me? Cananda's Matthew Good blows Eric away. Matt was the free ITUNES download a few weeks ago in the US.

    In response to the person who said Eric was being too cocky for his own good last night, well, I wasn't at the show (other commitments), but I've been a fan of Eric's for 3 or 4 years now, and have seen him play plenty of times, and I'm guessing that you misunderstood his humor as being cocky. He's a good guy.

    Perez u fucking douchebag! I'm been a good fan since u started and I am finally truely disapppointed! You are the first to break the story of Zac Effron wearing too much or too little makeup but u dont even break the story of PAVAROTTI??? SHIT That man WAS music, real music, not the trash u insist on…..its a shame such an international superstar was no important enough for you……trash the bad but please dont ever forget to salut the brave!

    Are you, Mr. Delusional, going to take ALL the credit for the success of these two albums on the charts? IF so, maybe you should quite being the media whore and become a music mogul (the next Clive Davis, gay and all) instead.

    Perez I love you, but if you've made indie music so popular, why is high school musical 2 still #1? Just wondering…

    To 'Hollywood' the person who said Eric isn't cocky. I understand humor and I wish I could say his behavior last night was the least bit funny. But when someone calls himself the second best act in Hollywood that night, second to Stevie Wonder that takes some balls. In my opinion he wasn't even the second best act last night in that venue let alone all of Hollywood.

    Meiko is not "unsigned"… she's BEEN signed with BLUE NOTE records…
