The Umbrella Genre Contest

Ever join a contest where each round is some overly specific genre? Melodic blackened death metalcore? Lo-fi hypnogogic indie glitch hop? Free improvisation? Forget that, it's time to get back to the basics with a song rec contest hosted by me.

The rules are simple:

1.Link a song via YouTube, Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, DailyMotion, Vimeo... or whatever you like as long as I don't have to download something.

2. The genre this round is pop. Anything from dance pop, to indie pop, to pop rock, to synth pop, to dream pop, to traditional pop. If it has pop in the name, go for it. If you pick something I don't think is pop, you'll lose points for it. I don't really define pop as just popular though, so like "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" despite being a top 40 single, will lose you points. Underground stuff can even be pop y'know?

3. Aim to impress me with what you pick, since I'm rating these.

4. If I know the song already, I'll tell you to pick something new, otherwise you're good.

5. I'm going to start each new round every Thursday night, so if you're late, you're out.

***I guess the winner can recommend me whatever album they want and I'll listen to it no matter the album as long as it's not impossible to find..***
